Pottery Firing

Ulysses Reid came down to our Prehistory Days event this weekend showing his art.  He is an excellent potter from Zia and was able to have a small firing on some nearby property after the days activities. Despite the 110 degree heat, about 150 people turned out to learn about flint knapping, fiber arts, prehistoric hunting, plant foods, spear throwing (atlatl), and other skills.

And a few finished vessels.  I really love his art. A few more photos of the event can be viewed here: http://theclovissite.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/new-mexico-prehistory-2011/
