This beautiful wedding vase pottery is painted and etched by Shirley Smith. Wedding vases were widely used by many Indian tribes in America. Many believed that as part of the ancient marriage ceremony the medicine man would prepare a special potion for the young lovers. The mixture signified the promise of deep love and eternal happiness for the couple. The couple then sealed the promise by drinking simultaneously from the vase, each using one spout.
