Native American Indian Pottery (USA)

In the US, native American Indian Pottery is considered made by actual Tribal members of the specific Indian tribe. The older pieces are highly collectible........ but also hard to find.

Here are two pieces that are Cherokee....... Cherokee Pottery is known for the dark colors as well as the "V" markings.............

Southwest U.S. Indian Pottery

After viewing what you have posted under this topic Sleep , I thought you all should be aware of some of the really great Native American pottery. First, I should say, the Cherokee tribe are not known for their pottery. To find really good Indian pottery, you must travel to the American Southwest; specifically, the various pueblos of New Mexico and Arizona where pottery making continues a tradition that is more than 1000 years old. The great pottery making pueblos include Acoma, Hopi-Tewa, San Ildefanso, Santa Clara, Zia, San Jaun, Santo Domingo, Zuni and others. Attached photos begin with Southwest and Meso-American pre-historic (prior to 1500 AD--referred to as prehistoric because before the Spanish invasion of the Americas there was no written understandable history).
T
The top shelf shows ancient Meso-American pots. The larger polychrome pieces are early Casas Grandes pots. The other pieces are from various Pre-Columbian Mexican cultures. The lower 2 shelves are from early American cultures (circa 900-1200 AD).


These next two pics show a variety of pots, the larger pieces are from the Acoma (Sky City) Pueblo with the exception of upper row right and left which are probably Laguna (difficult to tell the difference). These range from about 1905-1950's. Smaller pots on the top row are exquisite sgraffito pieces from Santa Clara Pueblo and date from the mid to late 1970's, except the bird form on the right which is Zuni. Small pieces from the middle row are (left to right) Hopi-Tewa (made by Bonnie Nampeyo), Acoma, Zuni, Hopi-Tewa (made by "Feather Woman 2", Sylvia Naha), and Zia.


These last 2 pics are miniature sgraffito pieces from the Santa Clara Pueblo. The bottle with stopper is by Grace Medicine Flower who is one of the most important living Native American potters; it is about 5 1/2" to the top, late 1970's. The next piece is by Gregory Lonewolf (Grace's nephew); it is about 2" tall. As you can see, this type of work is stunning in it's detail and exicution. A similar piece by Grace might be priced at about $2200-2500 in a gallery. Gregory's work is priced about $500-750 for a comparable piece.
Hope this gives you a slightly broader outlook on American Indian pottery.
