Pueblo and Navajo Pottery

The intrinsic value of Pueblo pottery springs from multiple sources. It starts with clay, hand gathered on pueblo,
Navajo and Hopi land from carefully guarded secret sources. It continues with pots and other items hand-built
by the coil method, using techniques developed over many centuries. Burnished with polishing stones
handed down from generation to generation, the pieces are painted and carved, then fired outdoors.
The resulting pieces are some of the finest potteryware made in the world today.

Designs used in Pueblo pottery incorporate many symbols, each with its special meaning.
These include the stairstep symbols representing the kiva or underworld leading to the clouds or heaven,
the feather, bird or flight symbols, the bear track, clouds and rain, rain in the distance,
lightning, the avanyu or water serpent, and water with lines flowing from left to right or up and down.
