Modern Hopi pottery is designed with a mix of both traditional and modernized features. Traditional Acoma pottery is made using clay that was found in the Southwest hills. This clay allowed them to form thin walls with intricate design, which makes the Acoma pottery unique. When Navajo pottery was first created, it was handmade with little to no design and thick.
