On an old painted chest the color of our favorite gemstone rest aged vessels, well preserved by our arid climate. A large prehistoric olla, circa 1200 A.D. from the Tonto basin to the east, anchors the trio. At the same time, black and white ware, including handled pitchers, were manufactured in the Four Corners area. Only a century old, but patterned after Hopi ware from the 1600s, this old seed jar holds the blue corn sacred to all in the southwest.
