Located forty miles south of Gallup, New Mexico, the Zuni pueblos produce a unique style of pottery that can easily be distinguished from the other pueblo pottery types based on form, design and materials. The Zuni use a white to gray clay with a crushed rock temper and paint their pots with bright white slip and a dark brown to black mineral paint that is often accented by a dark red. With utility always in mind, Zuni potters do not focus on symmetry of form as much as their neighbors at Acoma, but rather the design motifs
