About

Life is a circus, enjoy the show.

Various Native American tribes, in addition to the Navajo, make distinctively fascinating pottery known as horsehair pottery. Horsehair pottery is actually an ancient process, and results in beautiful as well as cherished items of art. It’s said that horsehair pottery was initially stumbled on by a pueblo artisan whose lengthy tresses blew up against new pottery she was extracting of a very hot kiln. The hair stuck and quickly carbonized. The outcome was so fascinating that she copied it using hairs from a horse’s tail.
