These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Micaceous pottery bowl with scalloped rim and black fire marks. The micaceous clay comes from the Manzano Mountains in New Mexico- a small range southeast of Albuquerque. The clay is blended with other clay as it is quite rough with little plasticity. Coiled, shaped, fired and polished in the traditional manner it is a very forgiving clay and can be reworked and shaped. It is a great heat conductor in firing. Since the clay has such flexed particles that add their own shimmer it is most often carved instead of painted.
