Laying Down Horse – Horse Hair Pottery

$36.00

Isn’t this piece of pottery absolutely unique and beautiful!  Horsehair pottery is an ancient form of art.  As the name suggests, this pottery is made with the use of hair coming from the mane and tail of a horse.  There is a belief that this was discovered by a Native American potter in Pueblo whose long hair came in contact with a pot she was carrying which she had just taken out of an incredibly hot kiln.  Her hair stuck to the pot and swiftly carbonized.  The result was so amazing that she decided to mimic it utilizing hairs from a horse’s tail.  This incident resulted in beautiful pottery that is regarded as one of the most unique kinds of ceramic you can purchase.

At this point in time, many members of Navajo tribes make this kind of pottery.  Usually it is decorated and etched with turquoise.  All are handmade by Native Americans.   Each piece of pottery will vary slightly in design and color.  This kind of pottery making is a centuries old process and leads to remarkable and cherished pieces of art.
