A Reconsideration of Mold Made Ceramics in Costal Ecuador: Chorrera and Jama Coaque
Author(s): Tom Cummins
Based on an examination of ceramic Chorrera, Jama Coaque and La Tolita figurines from the coast of Ecuador, this talk discusses the central role of the mold as both a forming technique and as a means to create a stable visual tradition from generation to generation. It will also suggest the impact on later traditions on the coast, such as the Moche tradition.
