Handmade Navajo Horsehair Pottery Vase
Handmade vase is etched with traditional geometric patterns and painted with vibrant blue, green, turquoise and red. Created using traditional Navajo horsehair pottery method, actual horsehair is applied to the finished pottery pieces immediately after the prepared ceramic clay pot has been fired. A thin layer of horsehair is evenly spread over the top of the pottery. Precise temperatures are required to allow the horsehair to properly burn into the pottery creating the unique marble effect. The pottery is then white with a matted glaze finish each piece is one-of-a-kind. The horse is highly regarded in many cultures, representing the essence of stamina, agility, beauty, and strength. This pottery is made with those values in mind.
