Zia Pueblo of New Mexico has a long and beautiful history of producing some of the most exquisite pottery before the 20th century. In the periods before 1900, Zia pottery exhibited intricate and magnificent designs such as those during the Trios period. After 1900, most Zia potters resorted to simply decorating their jars with the Zia Bird and floral elements, a marked decrease from the outstanding designs of earlier periods.
