Native American Indian Pottery


Navajo Indian PotteryShop for Indian PotteryIndian Pottery is as diverse as the people who make it. Perhaps more than any other medium, Native American Indian pottery reflects the culture of the maker. The Pueblo pottery tradition among American Indian tribes in the Southwest is nearly 2,000 years old.

The ancient cultures that made Indian pottery and their modern descendents share a foundation rooted deep in the land. The Anasazi , one of the first Indian pottery cultures of the Southwest gave rise to truly unique Native American Indian pottery traditions among their descendents such as the Pueblo, Hopi and Navajo. One thing in common amongst these tribes is the belief that Earth is the Mother of the people. The Native American pottery tradition of the Southwest can be seen as a physical extension of the Mother-Earth relationship.

The 19 Pueblos of New Mexico and the Hopi in Arizona each have their own distinctive Native American pottery style. With the Navajo you have a simple, yet elegant Indian pottery tradition. The most common form of Navajo Indian Pottery is the pinon-pitch vessel. Usually in the form of the double spouted wedding vases, water jars, bowls and “bubble pots”.
Hopi Pottery is one of the oldest and most widely collected of all the Native American Indian pottery styles. It is descended from Native American pottery made in the area for over a thousand years. It has a clearly defined look marked reworked ancient Ancestral Puebloan and Sinaguan designs on polished, unslipped, yellow vessels. The Third Mesa village of Old Oraibi is said to be the oldest continually inhabited city in the United States.

One of the most celebrated names in Hopi Potters is the Nampeyo family and their descendents. The Nampeyo family often employ two designs, the bird wing or “migration” and the “eagle”that encirclces their Native American pottery. Hopi potters pride themselves on the 'blush' of the pot’s surface, the subtle variation of surface color created by fire clouds. Not only beautiful, these marks also serve as proof that a pot was traditionally fired. The distinct ring you hear when you tap a piece of Hopi pottery is also a further indication of traditional firing. It means that consistent high temperatures have hardened the clay.
Within the creative landscape of Native American Indian Pottery, individual artists carry on a tradition that is thousands of years old. In making pottery they bring to life a connection with the land that has given them, their ancestors, and their descendents a rich and honorable life.
