 Native American Pottery

Native American potters in the Southwestern United States make traditional style pottery.  Their pottery usually features very thin walls, a desirable characteristic. Many of these artists create their pottery using hand coiled techniques. They often use slip colors in Black, White and dark Red.

This Pottery Bird Dish stands about 3 inches tall at the head.  The main part of the dish stands about 1.75 inches high.  The bowl measures about 3 inches x 3.5 inches in diameter.  We got this piece from a collection.  It is in  good condition.  It shows minimal signs of wear.  One of a Kind!
