Large Unique White Vase Genuine Hand Made Horse Hair Pottery by Natalie Jetter

This is exceptional pottery with precise techniques and skillful production. It's an art lover's delight. Yes, they actually use horse hair in the firing of this pottery. The horse hair is what creates the shadowy, reticulated streaks that meander about the walls of this dazzling pottery. Each horse hair pot is indeed a true one of a kind. If you don't receive the item in the pictures, you'll receive one the same shape and size from this artist. This vase is about 8" wide by 10" tall, but exact size varies as each unique item is hand thrown. Dating back many years, horsehair pottery is a Native American art form. As its name implies, it is made using hair from the tail and mane of a horse. The pots are hand thrown, bisque-fired and returned to the kiln. Handcrafted horsehair pottery is created by burning horsehair on the surface of a piece of pottery when it is red hot. The red coloring of many of the pots is caused from iron when the pot is sprayed with the iron-laden etching acid. Each piece is similar, but none are the same because of the free flow of the horsehair. It's been written in Native American folklore that a pueblo potter's long hair blew against a piece of pottery she was removing from a hot kiln and stuck to the piece, which first made horsehair pottery. The finished piece was so interesting that she duplicated it with hair from a horse's tail. Today, members of various tribes make horsehair pottery, including the Navajo people. Natalie Jetter has been creating elegant pottery for 7 or 8 years and specializes in horse hair pottery. Her interest in cultural art has a foundation in her youth, when her family traveled around the world and lived overseas. She found a way to express her creativity through pottery when she was working on her Master in Education and needed an art class for her degree. She was extremely accomplished from her first pottery class, when her instructor told her she must have been a potter in a previous life. She was selling pots after one year, in galleries after two, and winning best in show after three. She visits K-12 art classes and hopes to inspire children to find their art at a younger age than she did. Natalie has won several best in show awards out of hundreds of competitors and has given public demonstrations on Good Morning Arizona. Each horse hair pot in unique and part of Natalie's individual vision.
