Horsehair Pottery


The fine dark lines in this pottery are created using horsehair. This is done by throwing horsehair onto the pottery when it reaches about 1600 degrees during firing. The horsehair burns when it touches the hot pottery leaving a carbon stain cooked into it, making a beautiful and unique one of a kind pattern on each piece.

Horsehair Pottery Jewelry Box


by Hilda Whitegoat


Hilda Whitegoat is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born in 1967 into the Navajo Nation. Hilda was inspired to continue a long lived tradition of working with art by observing her sister, Susie Charlie, work on her pottery. Susie, who is credited with pioneering the popular Navajo Etched Pottery, shared the techniques of constructing the popular art form known today as “Navajo Etched Pottery” with Hilda. Hilda began crafting pottery at the age of 23, in 1989. The lucrative aspect of the business is also inspiration in her decision to become an artist.


Hilda paints on ceramic pottery and uses a sharp blade to hand etch on the pottery. Then, she fires her pottery in a kiln. She paints and etches on all sizes of ceramic ware available to her, and is most known for her beautiful colored horsehair pottery. She signs her pottery as: Hilda Whitegoat, Navajo.

Horsehair Pottery


by Gary Louis


Gary Louis and his wife, Corrine, are Acoma potters. Corrine is a third generation potter from the Marie Z. Chino family. Corrine and Gary are carrying on the family tradition of working with pottery. They first came across the idea of using human hair on their pottery when one of her own strands of hair fell on a piece as it was being removed from the oven and scorched the pot. It was from this accident that they decided to use this method to decorate their pottery. The human hair leaves lighter marks than the traditional horsehair. Over several years of trial and error they mastered the art of "Human Hair Pottery." Gary has won several awards at the New Mexico State Fair for his contemporary Acoma pottery. The hair burns when it touches the hot pottery leaving a light stain cooked into it, making a beautiful and unique one of a kind pattern on each piece. The piece is then completely etched by hand.
