Caddo Pottery

Caddo pottery is usually found in the 4-corner area of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma. In general, Caddo pottery is superior in technical construction to most all other Mississippian Era pottery. It is usually thinner, more symmetrical, and smoother in its finish. The best artistic creations made were bottle forms that exhibit extensive engravings. To achieve that high black luster they used a fine coating called slip, which is a mixture of sifted fine clay and sometimes paint. After they applied the slip or paint they would take a stone and rub it to get the desired high polish. Effigies are rarely seen in Caddo pottery, but the museum houses several rare instances of these uniquely rare vessels in animal and other effigy forms.
