Re: blue plicatas

Thanks Lowell,

I didn't really think there were any that were all that blue, and wondering why not. I'll have to look at Acoma closer next spring. 

It seems as though that pigment may not express in the plicata pattern.  Wonder if that is why there are so many blue zonals.

Don't really know if anyone has really pursued it much either.  There wouldn't be as much contrast between the ground as the violet plicatas, so maybe it's not such an appealing goal.
