Honyumptewa, Kimberly – Picuris Micaceous Cloud Bowl
Kimberly Riley Honyumptewa is from Laguna Pueblo and married to Aaron Honyumptewa who is Hopi/Picuris. She learned to make pottery from her mother-in-law Caroline Simbolo Cine in the traditional Picuris style and using native clay from the area. Each piece is coil built and traditionally fired. This is a classic “cloud bowl” with the raised cloud terrace on one side. The firing is striking and sets off the gold and various hues of the micaceous clay. The bowl is signed on the bottom.
