Hopi Horse Hair Pottery Wedding Vase 8" (p266)
This wedding vase is a high quality piece of authentic Native American, Hopi pottery. This unique piece of Navajo Indian pottery uses real horse hair during the firing process to create this rustic vase. The artist throws the pieces of horse hair onto the pottery at just the right time to cause it to stick and melt into the piece.
This causes a permanent application of the horse hair to the pot and yields the famous look that everyone loves. Each piece is unique, no two are exactly alike. This piece was then artfully hand painted with a beautiful Native design.
Wedding vases are created or purchased by the parents of young people when they marry. Used during the wedding ceremony as a symbol of unity, the vase is a prized posession that the couple will keep their entire lives. This piece would be perfect for any southwest style, western decor or cabin. It would also make a great special gift. Actual wedding vase is shown, measures 8" tall, 6" wide.
