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.

Each pot is created in the potter's home with the help of family members.
