We have wanted a traditional canteen from Ruby for a long time. She makes them so well. Using the same natural pigments she does in her large pots, the canteen is lovely with its Zia bird in the center, and the other painted designs around it. The bottom of the canteen is a terra cotta red, with another lighter red band above it. Those areas act like a border for the main bird design. The handles are tied with real buckskin, so one can hang it on a wall, or lay it down.
For those folks that are interested in very classic and traditional forms, a canteen by Ruby fits the bill!
