Wedding Vases


The wedding vase has been part of Pueblo life for centuries. The two spouts represent the separate lives of the bride and groom, which are united by the bridge at the top. The groom’s parents provide the wedding vase for use in the ceremony. On the day of the wedding, the vase is filled with holy water and given to the bride. She drinks from one side and the groom drinks from the other. This ceremony is equivalent to the exchanging of wedding bands.

The wedding vases presented here are meant to be used for display only and make wonderful wedding and anniversary gifts. Ceremonial pottery is considered sacred and is only made and given as gifts among tribal members. The pottery must be fired in a certain way to be hardened against water permeation, or otherwise sealed using pine pitch or wax.

Jemez Pueblo Pottery Wedding Vase


by Pauline Romero


Pauline continues to use the traditional methods of pottery making, but has come a long way from the poster-paint days of the Jemez pottery. She gathers her clay from within the hills of the Jemez Pueblo. She also cleans, mixes, hand coils, shapes, paints, polishes, and fires her pottery the traditional way, outdoors. She has a unique method of adding a hand stone polish to a red or buff colored slip. The shapes are swirl bowls, wedding vases and various shaped pots. Pauline has also started to etch on her pottery, which add a very elegant contrast to the her polished work. She signs her pottery as: Pauline Romero, Jemez.
