Zuñi people


For over two thousand years until the present day, peoples of the American Southwest and neighboring Mexico have shared a long tradition of pottery making.

The term "earthenware" refers to a type of porous, easily broken ceramic, which is made from clay, baked at low temperatures.

Donated by Mrs. Valette Miller White of Indianapolis to the John Herron Art Institute {1} in 1936

{1} The John Herron Art Institute was the precursor to the Indianapolis Museum of Art
