Navajo Pottery

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 generations.

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.

Early Navajo pottery differed from other tribes and was made in the coil and pinch method of old societies. The Navajo pottery 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.
