HORSEHAIR POTTERY BOX BY SEFARINA BENALLY NATIVE AMERICAN

čReturn to Previous Page
Description

Description

This fabulous horsehair pottery box was created by Navajo potter Sefarina Benally.  Navajo pottery is is made through a process by which clay is poured into a mold, hand painted and hand etched by the potter, and then fired in a kiln.  Each piece of pottery is beautiful and unique.  Sefarina designed this pottery box well, with attractive colors that compliment the etched design.  Signed

2¬† 1/2‚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.
