Specialty Handbuilt Clay Pottery
At Kachina House we carry a vast selection of Native American handcoiled pottery by artists from various tribes. Crafted and accented with natural materials, we offer unique objects of art and craft.
We offer pottery by both established and new Native American artists from many Pueblos, including Acoma, Hopi, Jemez, Santa Clara, Santo Domingo and Zuni as well as traditional handbuilt pottery from Navajo and Mohawk potters.
Handcoiled pottery is made using thin coils of clay piled one on top of the other, each being “finger pressed” into the coil below it. Most handcoiled pottery at Kachina House is made from clay which is locally dug by the potters. The pottery is generally open-pit fired or fired in self-consuming kilns, and, if from Santa Clara Pueblo in particular, fired many times to achieve the black layer on the underlying red clay. Air temperature, firing method, and wind among other variables have a part in the success or failure of the firing process. Coiled, fired and cooled pots are then finished by the artist with etching and/or painting.
Kachina House has outstanding pottery at reasonable prices, whether you are a seasoned collector or a novice buying your very first piece of Native American handcoiled pottery.
