We offer a vast selection of Native American Indigenous made pottery at all price ranges and styles including Navajo ceramic and handbuilt, Horsehair, Pueblo, Storytellers and Wedding Vases.
Our handbuilt pottery is created by Native American Indians in the southwestern United States. If you study indigenous cultures throughout time, almost every society has had some sort of pottery they developed, especially if they were a farming culture. The tribes that farmed the land seemed to have more use for pots as storage vessels for water and seed for crops. Many of the Native American tribes used pottery years before the Europeans arrived, after which they created more sophisticated ways to produce pottery and textiles
Many of the tribes eventually lost their ability to craft native pottery as they were pushed away from their original homes and the clay beds where they dug for material for their pots. At the same time, the tribes that had excellent potters kept their craft and passed it down through generations; those tribes who did not continue their pottery developed other skill sets.
Traditionally, Native American pottery is NOT glazed on the inside. If you put liquid in an unglazed pot it will be absorbed into the clay and seep through as the clay is very porous. If the pot is smooth and very shiny on the inside, like a coffee mug, it is glazed which means you can put liquid in it, but not for a long period of time.
