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.

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.
