Attributed to the legendary Hopi potter, Nampeyo
The Hopi are an American Indian group who have lived in northeastern Arizona for over 1,000 years. They are particularly renowned for their pottery. The most famous Hopi potter is a woman named Nampeyo (1859–1942), of the Hopi-Tewa. She and her three daughters created some of the most beautiful Hopi pottery of the late 19th and early 20th century. Nampeyo's pottery is traditional, pulling directly from ancestral forms and techniques in a way that connects it to the past and sets it apart from other pottery.
