When used for water storage, the pot was covered with pine pitch so it would remain waterproof. Navajo potter, Nancy Chilly made this stunning vase. A great addition to your Native American art or pottery collection.
5 1/8 tall x 4 3/4 long x 4 3/4 wide. Although Navajo potters learned the art of pottery making from the Pueblo people, they have developed their own distinctive pottery style. Traditionally, Navajo pottery had little or no design.The beauty of the clay and the markings, or fire clouds, from firing, was showcased. Currently, Navajo pottery is not confined to traditional techniques and Navajo potters are experiencing new and creative approaches.
Some traditionally designed, some etched or painted brightly, and some thrown in the fire with horse hair, but melted pinon pitch should be applied on Navajo pottery to give it a glossy finish.
