White Mound Black-on-White - CA. 700-900
White Mound Black-on-White is one of three distinct types that arose in the Four Corners area during the Pueblo I period, the others being Kiatuthlanna Black-on-White and Red Mesa Black-on-White. White Mound Black-on-White is sand-tempered, tending toward gray in its natural form, but bowls lack the bright white slip which distinguishes it from Red Mesa Black-on-White. Decoration consists of fine lines, solid triangles, spirals and dots.
