Product Information

NP18104 - Herman Oliver Navajo Pot
Navajo made pottery by Herman Oliver. The pots are bone dry, he coats them with layers of colored slip. He then scratches or etches designs through the individual layers with a simple carbide stylus or exacto knife. By etching with varying pressures, a particular scratch will expose the colors he wishes or in some cases, the base clay, which is typically white or red. He etches these designs using no pattern, no preliminary sketch to layout the design and no paper sketch to go by. He etches these designs straight from his mind to the vessel. This seed pot vase has hummingbirds with fine etchings around and two round cut turquoise stones set in the two bear paws. One of a kind item. The pot measures 2" tall and 4" wide.
