Adelle Nampeyo was born into the Hopi-Tewa Nation in 1959. She is one of the great-granddaughters of the famous “Nampeyo” known for reviving and expanding the beautiful ancient style of pottery called Sikyatki. She was inspired to learn the art of pottery making from her mother, the late Elva Nampeyo. Nampeyo specializes in the handmade traditional ancient Sikyatki polychrome pottery for which her family is famous. This piece was hand coiled and painted in the traditional methods and designs. Her strong spiritual beliefs drive her to continue making pottery the traditional way. She now teaches children the art of her ancestors so they can continue in her footsteps. She signs her pottery with a corn symbol to proudly denote her clan origin.
This handcrafted ceramic vessel measures 4.5"h x 5"w and is signed by the artist.
