Authentic Replication: Early Ceramics of Colorado's Eastern Plains
Experiential researcher, Cherylene Caver, will discuss her replication process of the Early Ceramics jars of Colorado’s eastern plains, as well as the Black-on-White, San Juan Redware, and Corrugated cooking pots of southwestern Colorado.
Over 1,000 years ago, a group of hunter/gatherers – now referred to as Plains Woodland – migrated to eastern Colorado, a wide-open, treeless space. They probably came here in pursuit of bison. The need to process this large game animal may have instigated the creation of large and uniquely shaped vessels. Join us as ceramics replicator Cherylene Caver reviews the basics of prehistoric pottery replication, followed by a discussion of Early Ceramics of Colorado’s Plains Woodland culture.View more
