Made from the red clay of the Black Hills, SD, USA ~ sacred to the Lakota People ~ and a fine imported white clay from Kentucky.
Each piece is crafted by the Sioux artists and decorated with designs and symbols important to their culture. The Paha Sapa (Black Hills) provided shelter, food, and sustenance for the Indian Tribes of the Great Sioux Nation, and continues to yield the red clay used in making Sioux Pottery.
Sioux Pottery is designed and hand crafted by Sioux Indian Artists. Our plant is located in Rapid City, South Dakota, gateway to the beautiful Black Hills area, and is less than an hour's drive from the scenic and historic South Dakota Badlands.
We invite you to visit our factory, meet the artists and see how Sioux Pottery is made. Visitors are always welcome!
Many pieces are on display, including our Sioux Pottery Collectibles and handcrafted silver jewelry. The triangular symbols developed and used by the Seven Tribes of the Lakota depicted the nature surrounding them, their dealings and important events.
These symbols dominated the intricate designs of their bead work, and decorated their skin garments, weapons, utensils and pottery. Sioux symbols alone, or in combination, express the spirit and culture of the Lakota people. Sioux Artists have skillfully adapted these symbols in the unique decorative designs of Sioux Pottery.
