While looking through his super select pieces of pottery shards, Jamie came across this spectacular specimen with a drill hole in it.  Jamie tells us the ancient ones had pots that, when broken, were not just tossed into the trash bin.  In order to prolong the life of certain cracked pots, they would drill holes on opposing sides of the break and lash it back together with leather, or twine created from woven vegetation. Unfortunately this is all that remains of the cherished pottery bowl.  On the other hand, it is fortunate that anything at all remains.  With Jamie's help, we can look through this tiny opening, which allows our modern mind to wander back and speculate on how things might have been, oh so long ago.

We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on every purchase.



About the artist:

James A. Olson James A. Olson - Jewelry/Sculpture Artist:
"About my work, or lack of, it chose me as much as I chose it. Asked where I get my ideas, I can't really say for sure. I'm thankful I get them once in awhile, and have the basic skills to carry them through to a satisfactory condition, at that point and time. I'm blessed, I love what I do, it's a passion. When that love and passion is not there, I'll do something else." See full biography | See all items by James A. Olson

Pottery
The Navajo are relatively recent arrivals to the Southwest. They probably migrated from the north in the 16th Century thereby becoming a part of the Pueblo IV period. The Navajo have made pottery since their arrival; possibly they brought pottery with them during their southern migration. They made a plain and decorated pottery. The plain being considered the older style? More about this legend
