Traditional Pinon-Pitch Pottery

Posted by on 3/9/2019 to Good Things To Know
This is a unique style of pottery. A blend of traditional and contemporary techniques has been used. The pottery is formed using the coil method, where coils of clay are built layer upon layer to form the shape. Once the rounded bowl shape is achieved, it is smoothed and allowed to dry. After the piece is dried it is carved, painted and fired. The last finishing touch is when the pot is sealed using a traditional coating of fine pinon-pine pitch. The Yei-bi-chei are a supernatural beings in Navajo culture and with the power to heal. Male figures have round heads, and female Yeis have rectangular heads. In this piece we have two males and two females around the pot. Signed on the bottom and the size is 3.5" tall and wide.

The Talking Stick is a method used by many Native American tribes. The stick let all members who wished to talk hold it while others had to wait for their turn. All members of the circle were valued, one could not talk about any person in a bad or negative way.
