Typically thin-walled and light-weight, ollas were originally used to carry and store water. As with most pueblo pottery, women traditionally made the jars; they dug the clay, painted designs using colors derived from plants or minerals and fired the pots. This tightly-drawn overall geometric pattern is one of many variations in Acoma design, a mark of potters responding to changing economic demands, and bridging those demands with ties to their traditional forms.
