A Petrographic Analysis of Jemez Black-on-white Pottery from Five Classic Period Sites in the Jemez Province, New Mexico (c. 1350-1700 AD)
Author(s): Wade Campbell
Unlike many other ceramic types in the American Southwest, Jemez Black-on-white is commonly regarded as a distinctive locally-made type that remained both stylistically and compositionally unchanged for three centuries. This generally accepted status of Jemez Black-on-white, however, has meant that until recently, little additional work has been done to better understand its origins and development. Here, I present the results of a petrographic analysis of 15 Jemez Black-on-white sherds taken from five separate Classic Period (c. 1350 – 1700 AD) Puebloan sites in the greater Jemez Valley, New Mexico. This work aims to expand the existing knowledge of Jemez Black-on-white ceramic production practices and provide a basis for future arguments concerning the non-centralized local production of Jemez Black-on-white versus a higher degree of subregional organization/control of ceramic production in the Jemez region.
