NAVAJO POTTERY WITH FEATHERS & TURQUOISE GA200045

The oldest known piece from the Navajo was utilitarian, it was excavated

and dated back to 1500 – 1700. In the 1860’s trading posts began to carry ready

made Navajo pottery, causing the production to slow greatly. This was a time

where it was typically only used for ceremonies.

The Navajo usually included little to no design on their wares. Their pieces were

usually waterproof and glossy, achieved by a technique called

“melted pinon pitch”
