The designs on the soup plate can be found in Colonial-era Churches through Rio Arriba, NM.
The soup plate takes its origin based on found pottery from archeological digs in Central New Mexico from the time the Spanish Franciscans established their first missions in the 1600’s.
After the Pueblo Revolt the plates were no longer made as a means to pay Spanish tax, the production of the soup plates became recreational, no longer forced, and so the designs flowered and the Native potters were free to treat the ware with their artistry.
