Native American Wedding Vases
Largest Selection of Wedding Vases Anywhere!


Wedding Vases
Authentic Native American, traditional and contemporary, wedding vases by the potters of Santa Clara, Jemez, Hopi, Zia, Laguna, Zuni, Taos and Acoma pueblos ~ also the potters of Mata Ortiz and the Navajo Dine Nation. All our one-of-a-kind vases are created from hand-dug clay. The clay is then hand coiled into shape and painted with natural pigments derived from vegetation and minerals by the potter whose signature is on the vase's bottom. Each pot is created in the potter's home with the help of family members. We do not sell slip-cast or green ware (where liquid clay is poured into identical molds) which cannot legally be sold as authentic Native American art. Slip-cast pottery is mass produced and commonly considered "tourist pottery" for souvenirs.
