In the Kayenta area of northern Arizona and Southern Utah, vessels were often painted in a unique negative style. In negative painting, the lighter color (in this case the white slip) carries the design, while the background is formed by darker painting. Many of these vessels have net-like motifs incorporated into the main portion of the design, imparting a rich textural appearance to the surface.
