Description

Fourteen figures (yei alternating with a woman)  followed by four tall stalks of corn

Luscious thin walls accentuate the beauty of this entirely unique vessel by the incomparable Ida Sahmie !

About the Artist Born on the Navajo reservation in 1960, Ida Sahmie was taught to weave rugs by her mother and grandmother. After marrying Andrew Sahmie, a Hopi man, and watching her in-laws make pottery, she too, began working in clay. Andrew is the great-grandson of Nampeyo, a name synonymous with Hopi pottery. Ida learned to work with the clay in the Hopi manner and style, but makes it uniquely her own by incorporating Navajo motifs, particularly Yeis, or Holy People, into the slip-painted designs.
