Glaze-Paint Pigmenting Strategies in the Upper Little Colorado and Western Zuni Regions
This is an abstract from the "Attention to Detail: A Pragmatic Career of Research, Mentoring, and Service, Papers in Honor of Keith Kintigh" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
We report on research that uses LA-ICP-MS to examine glaze-paint pigmenting strategies and lead isotopes to investigate lead sources used during the Pueblo IV period in the Upper Little Colorado and Western Zuni Regions of the American Southwest. Pigment data suggest that glaze-paint recipes were shared across several adjacent regions, attesting to cross-cutting technological communities of practice and the circulation of ideas, production techniques, and (probably) potters during the Pueblo IV period. Additionally, potters in these regions used raw materials that derive from two main sources, Cerrillos and Hansonburg. Many western region potters appear to have regularly mixed materials from both sources in their glaze paints, a contrast from Rio Grande potters who typically utilize a single source. Similarity in glaze recipes applied to both Zuni Glaze Ware and White Mountain Red Ware suggest shared practices at the village, intraregional and interregional scales. These results contribute to the increasingly macroregional exploration of glaze-paint technology and we conclude by situating these data in this larger analytical frame.
