Born in Keams Canyon, Arizona, Rondina has continuously lived in the Hopi village of Polacca since childhood. Without any commercial training, She has mastered the art of traditional Hopi Pottery making and has become one of the most influential Hopi potters working today. Her tight style and intricately painted pottery have changed the face of contemporary Hopi pottery. Each piece is coil built, fully stone polished and painted with native clays and bee-weed (black), and native fired. She has won the "Best of Show" award at Santa Fe Indian Market twice, 1986 and 1997; A remarkable achievement for an artist. Her work is consistent and of outstanding quality, with precision painting and continual innovation of design. Rondina often signs her work with the Parrot symbol for her clan along with her name and Hopi-Tewa. Her pottery is beautiful and visually important and is in many important collections and is always a great addition to any collection.
