Honie, Patricia -Tile with Eagle (1978)
Patricia Honie was from the Hopi village of Sichomovi at First Mesa. She was a sister of noted potter Juanita Healing. Patricio began making pottery around 1960 and continued through 1987. This is a classic tile with a stylized eagle as the design. It is painted with bee-weed (black) and traditionally fired. It is signed on the back, “Patricia Honie”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. There is some smoke from the firing.
