The ancient Indian tribes made this pottery to honor a favoritehorse or to celebrate the birth of a horse. It is said that this pottery wasfirst created when a long-haired maiden was removing hot pottery from her kilnand the wind blew her hair onto the hot pot and burned the hair into thepottery. The pottery is poured, fired for a period of time after which it isremoved from the kiln, and hair from the mane and the tail of a horse are drapedon the pottery. The hair creates the dark lines and the smoke from the burninghair creates the cloudy grey areas. The pottery is then returned to the kilnwhere firing is completed. Then the pottery is removed from the kiln, etchedand spray-glazed.
