Native American Hopi Handbuilt and Handpainted Traditional Pot


Native American Hopi Handbuilt and Handpainted Traditional Pot by White Swann

Wonderful handbuilt and handpainted large pot created by Hopi master potter White Swann. This spectacular piece with pristine painting and a deep red inside the neck has classic Hopi patterns. The shape is a standard for the Hopi potter. This particular pot has a wonderful balance when you hold it.

White Swann (Dolly Joe Navasie) learned the art of making pottery early in life by watching and working with her mother, Eunice Navasie.

White Swans digs her clay and processes it in the traditional way. She hand coils her pottery and fires it outdoors with sheep dung. White Swann uses yucca leaves to make her paint brushes. The maroon coloration is achieved with the use of iron oxide. the yellow clay provides the orange finish. Like all the Hopi potters, she is always learning and is now refining her "blush" that is achieved when firing the pots.
