Dine (Navajo) Pottery
The piece is done in what is known as “Navajo Pine Pitch” which is a description for the use of the pine sap coating used on these vessels to give it the appearance of a polished finish. Traditional Navajo pottery is usually thicker in appearance than other Native American pottery and covered with a pine pitch making it utilitarian. This enabled the piece to hold water or to use in cooking.
