HORSEHAIR POTTERY VASE BY JESSICA BILLY NATIVE AMERICAN

čReturn to Previous Page
Description

Description

Navajo potter Jessica Billy made this beautiful horsehair pottery vase.  Shimmery bands of colors complement the etched designs. A dream catcher is on the front. When firing the green ware and it is about 1600 degrees, horsehair is thrown on the pot. The horsehair burns when it touches the hot pottery, creating the unique marble effect. Each piece is one of a kind. Then the pottery is glazed and etched with designs.  Signed

3¬† 3/4‚ÄĚ tall x 3¬† 5/8‚Ä≥ long x 3¬† 5/8‚Ä≥ 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.
