Horse Hair Pottery

The horse hair ceramic technique originated with potters of the Yellowcorn clan of the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico. In the “horse hair” process, once the piece reaches the correct temperature inside the kiln, the kiln is opened and the pot is pulled out very quickly. At that very instant, horse hair strands are gently applied, burning on contact with the hot clay surface. Once the piece cools down, it is cleaned, waxed, and buffed to a smooth ivory like finish. The results are always exciting and dramatic, with no two pieces ever coming out exactly alike. Not for food use and use a liner if
using as a flower vase. This horse hair pottery collection is handcrafted in Laguna Beach, Ca. by Jones Ceramics. Enjoy!

I can do a custom piece using the horse from your very own horse, or a friends horse, and I will engrave the horses name on the bottom. Below are some hand thrown shapes you can choose from...
round, egg shape, trumpet vase, or jar

Made of clay and hand formed on the pottery wheel 
in the “raku” process, the wares are loaded into the kiln and fired quickly. Once the firing is complete the pieces are immediatelycarefully removed from the hot kiln, with the   glaze still molten. The pieces are then placed in a container with  sawdust, pine needles, or paper.  The reaction with the glaze  produces the exciting results. No two pieces ever come out exactly alike. Raku ware is decorative and will not hold water, and should be kept out of direct sunlight to preserve the glaze. Enjoy!
