Kapo Black Jar

Kapo Black Jar

Museum signage: At least on-third of the pottery used at Las Humanas was made elsewhere. The origin of the pottery can be determined by identifying the clay, the glaze, and the temper—the mineral added to the clay to keep it from cracking during firing. The Kapo black jar came from the Rio Grande valley above Santa Fe.
