Hand Coiled Tarahumara Indian Pottery Vase 5.5" (p186)
This authentic dark southwestern Indian pottery vase made by hand by the Tarahumara Indians is a fabulous addition to any rustic southwestern decor and comes from deep within the Sierra Madre where similar pots are used to cook over an open fire which causes the characteristic scorch marks. This piece has been decorated with real rawhide lacing, resulting in a one of a kind clay piece with rustic charm. This Tarahumara Indian pot is unused and comes with a tri-pod base made of rustic pieces of pine branches, wrought iron and rawhide lace for decoration.
This Native American style vase is unique in that it is the type of primitive Native pottery that Indian potters have made for centuries. Made by the pinch and coil method, Tarahumara Indian pots are made by hand without a wheel. The vase is formed by hand coiling clay for the shape of the vessel, then burnished with a piece of smooth wood or stone. The display base makes it possible for the pot to stand upright for viewing.
Perfect for country cabin log home, ranch or lodge. Southwest pottery is beautiful as a vase for dried flowers on a table centerpiece or shelf. Tarahumara Indian pottery is an excellent accessory for western furniture and southwest decor. Pot measures approximately 4" wide, 5.5" tall, not including base. Photo is representative.
