In 1910, in an effort to revive the art of pottery at Santo Domingo Pueblo, a group of three women artists from the Aguilar family developed a new style unique to their family. Instead of large areas of open white designs, the Aguilar sisters almost completely obliterated the white with bold black and red colors.
