Native American Pottery

Our handbuilt pottery products are created by Native American Indians here 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; which created a 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 materials for their pots. At the same time, the tribes that had excellent potters kept their craft and passed it down through generations, and those that were not let it fade away and other skill sets developed.
