St. Johns Glaze Polychrome - CA. 1200-1300

St. Johns Glaze Polychrome seems to be a late manifestation of St Johns Polychrome, after the introduction of glaze paints to the area. Black-on-red interiors and white-painted exteriors are still the norm, but vessels and paint acquire a glazed quaility, and designs are closer to the later Pinedale Style.

Characteristics

Paste: Gray turning to yellow if oxidized
Temper: Sherd and sand
Surface: Bright red glaze, polished
Forms: Bowls, rarely jars and ladles
Design: Similar to Pinedale Polychrome with bands of corbeled-line decoration separated by thin lines on interiors, broad white-lined motifs similar to St Johns Polychrome on exteriors, probably executed with an iron-free slip
