Santo Domingo Pueblo

"The potters of Santo Domingo have continued to produce their serviceable bowls and ollas (jars) with the same basic materials and designs since the 1700s. When a railroad station was built near the Pueblo, potters responded, unlike elsewhere, by producing very few novelties. Sturdy bowls and ollas made at Santo Domingo are used throughout the Pueblo world. Changes have been few; but in the first two decades of this century, potters changed from a red band and stone polish to a rag-applied red underbody."
