Wedding Vase Pottery

Throughout the years, Southwestern Pueblo Indians have cherished their Native American Wedding Vase Pottery. Even when introduced to Christianity, they continued to practice both Christian and ancient rituals such as the exchanging of the wedding vase. All Southwestern Pueblo Indians create wedding vase pottery. Originally, these beautiful traditional pieces of Native American pottery were only traded among tribal members, and they were not always used in religious marriage ceremonies.

Prior to a Christian ceremony, the groom’s parents create a wedding vase which will be presented to the bride a week or so before their intended wedding. She will then begin to gather items, and prepare the household to make a home for herself and the groom. Before the ceremony begins, the wedding vessel is filled with holy water. During the ceremony, the groom and bride sip from the wedding vase which seals their union. The couple will covet the vase, and if one spouse precedes the other in death, it must be given as a gift to another couple to ensure their happy life together. The Native American wedding vase may not be sold by the surviving spouse.

All Native American Indian wedding vase pottery has common features. Each one has two openings, or drinking spouts, that are connected by a single bridged handle. The openings symbolize the lives of the two individuals, and the handle symbolizes the union of them through marriage. They are painted, decorated with semi- precious stones, beads, shells, or feathers, and etched to provide to create both modern and traditional designs.

Wedding Vase Pottery is a favorable addition to any Southwest decor in your home or office. All Native American Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, Acoma, and Jemez Southwest Pueblo Indian tribes create beautiful handmade, hand painted wedding vases.
