POTTERY WEDDING VASE BY FREDDIE SMITH NATIVE AMERICAN

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Navajo potter Freddie Smith hand crafted this wonderful pottery wedding vase.  Great patterns are etched and painted on the wedding vase.   When traditional Navajo pottery was used for water storage it was covered with a pinon pitch to waterproof it.  Thus, you see the distinctive gloss varnish.  Certain shapes of pottery are covered with a piece of deer hide and used by medicine men as drums in various healing ceremonies.  Signed

7” tall x 4  3/8″ long x 4  3/8″ 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.
