Fannie Nampeyo was the youngest daughter of noted potter Nampeyo of Hano and also the mother of noted potters Iris Nampeyo, Leah Nampeyo and Thomas Polacca. She was certainly among the most skilled of her generation for painting designs on her pottery. While her mother revived the "migration" or bird wing design, Fannie made is a signature design of her pottery and of the Nampeyo family. Fannie's pottery can be found in museums around the world, along with information in books such as, "Nampeyo: The Legacy of a Master Potter".

Nampeyo, Fannie – Bowl with Blackbird Migration Pattern (1960’s)

This bowl by Fannie Nampeyo is a classic bowl shape.  form.   The design is a black bird migration pattern with the bird in black above the shoulder and the bird tail below the shoulder.  The design has a great flow around the entire piece.  It was traditionally fired creating the striking color variations on the surface.  It’s not often that we see such complex painting on Fannie’s smaller pieces.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Fannie Nampeyo” and it is from the 1960’s.
