Navajo pottery is among the most revered art in the United States.
The tribe has been making pottery for hundreds of years and today,
they are known for their ability to craft and carve the highest
quality pottery while staying true to techniques passed down for
Navajo pottery artists made vessels for utilitarian purposes such
as gathering water and storing food. However, when the railroads
were built close to tribal areas, the Navajo pottery designs
changed to reflect a more artistic approach. This allowed them to
engage in trading with outsiders heading west.
Navajo pottery artists implement culturally and spiritually
significant imagery in their beautiful work, including rain, clouds
and lightning, which are important symbols for fertility, renewal
and change. The depictions are usually angular with straight lines
that reflect the skyline of the high desert areas where early
Navajo pottery artists lived.
Many images that hold deep meaning are portrayed in Navajo Indian
pottery. The Yeii Spirit is one popular addition to many styles of
artwork. The spirit is believed to control natural forces and act
as a mediator between man and the creator.

artists would bonfire and treat the work. Before the pot cooled,
melted pitch was rubbed on the vessel. The technique gave Navajo
Indian pottery a very distinctive look and aroma.
