Horsehair Pottery Horsehair Pottery is fired using a special technique. Fine lines are created with the hair from the mane of the horse, and thick lines are created from the hair of the tail. After the pot is fired, it is rock polished; no paint or glaze is used. This horse hair pottery is handcrafted by the Navajo Indians on the Navajo Indian reservation. Each piece is a unique, one of a kind, irreplaceable piece of art.
