Kenneth White has created an unusually large and impressive version of the Navajo Yei vase. Made from native clay and covered in images of male and female gods, sacred corn, and textile patterns, he has captured many of the traditional symbols of Navajo life. The People believe that buried underground are pools of water, held in clay pots, which bubble up to the surface to supply springs and other desert water sources.


About the artist:

Kenneth & Irene White KENNETH & IRENE WHITE : Navajo Pottery
Kenneth & Irene are a husband and wife team who live on the Northern Arizona portion of the Navajo Reservation. They have developed a unique style of pottery using a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques. The pottery is formed using the coil method, where coils of clay are built layer upon layer to form the bowl shape. Once the rounded bowl shape is achieved, it is smoothed and allowed to dry. After the piece is dried it is carved, painted and fired. Lastly, the pots are sealed using a traditional coating of pine pitch. See full biography | See all items by Kenneth & Irene White
