Zia Pottery

Zia Pottery

Potters at the Zia Pueblo of New Mexico have been making pottery since the 1700s, with several distinct design and form types emerging throughout the years. During what is known as the Trios Polychrome period (1820-1860), Zia potters were creating exquisite wares with painstaking intricacy, featuring redware with superb geometric polychrome designs. Collectors still have access to Zia pottery with Trios designs today because many potters alive at the end of the Trios Polychrome period would have still been making pottery in that style well through the 1890s. The Zia pottery period (1860-today) also features outstanding workmanship, often featuring the iconic Zia bird surrounded by floral and geometric motifs.
