In the late thirteenth century a new type of pottery called Salado polychromes appeared across a broad swath of the southern Southwest. A better understanding of the technology used to create such wares will help answer some of the questions related to Salado as a cultural phenomenon. Potter and independent researcher Andy Ward will discuss how he has used the process of “reverse engineering” to successfully reproduce Salado polychromes and the lessons learned along the way.
