Horse Hair Pottery gets its name and distinctive look from the use of horse hair (mane and tail) added to the clay. It is said that horse hair pottery was first discovered by a pueblo artisan whose long hair blew up against new pottery she was removing from a hot kiln. The hair stuck to the pot and quickly carbonized. She was so taken by the beautiful design that she copied it using hairs from a horse's tail.
