** Navajo Traditional Pitch Pot **

$30.00

Traditional clay fillet with the pinon pitch coating.

(Clay deposits are found in many locations across the Navajo Reservation, most abundant deposits are located in the Shonoto-Cow Springs region and on Black Mesa.)

Clay is ground, cleaned and mixed with tempering materials (volcanic cinders, broken pottery shards or sand), constructed to desired design, dryed thoroughly, fired (traditional method-building a fire of juniper, when burned down pottery is placed on top of hot coals and completely covered with juniper and/or sheep/cattle manure, to burn hot for several hours.) Usually the pot will be fired several times to insure durability.
The black marks on the pottery are called "fire clouds", it results from the pottery coming in contact with the fire.
