Description

This handsome yellow ware vessel may have been made by a Hopi potter who was a student of Nampeyo.

About the Artist In the 17th century many Tewas left the pueblos of what is now New Mexico and joined the Hopis, settling at Hano at First Mesa, where they continued their tradition of fine pottery. On what is now known as the Hopi reservation in Arizona, potters use stylized parrot, rain and cloud designs to decorate polychrome bowls, jars and canteens. An excellent resource is Hopi-Tewa Pottery by Gregory Schaaf.
