Turtle Horse Hair Pot


"Navajo etched pottery is hand painted on a wheel while the clay is still soft. Etched designs are then made using fine carving tools on either red terracotta or white gypsum clay. After the piece has been fired, the resulting designs will clearly and permanently show through.

Horse Hair pottery has an additional challenging stp in which hair from the tail and main of a horse are sprinkled on the piece at just the right moment so that the hair will burn into the pot as black lines that give each pot a unique and unrepeatable design."

This beautifully, hand-crafted, unique piece of pottery was made by native artist Carol Johnson. "Carol is a member of the Navajo tribe. She is a skilled carver of Navajo Pottery. Carol specializes in making Horse Hair pottery and enjoys carving animal designs on her pieces. She learned how to carve from her uncle." This one of a kind piece measures approximately four inches wide and four inches tall.
