Jeddito Black-on-Yellow - CA. 1300-1625

Jeddito Black-on-Yellow developed out of Jeddito Black-on-Orange in the northeastern corner of Arizona. Made from a yellowish paste tempered with fine sand, pottery was fired in an oxidizing atmosphere, turning manganese-based paints black or brown. Although some figural bowls occur, geometric designs are far more common, but unlike the earlier Jeddito Black-on-Orange, the geometric designs are much more loosely organized, and appear almost emblematic.
