Honyumptewa, Kimberly Riley – Picuris Micaceous Bowl with Twisted Handle
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 bowl is thin-walled and traditionally fired. The coloration is striking with fired clouds on the handle and the bowl itself. The handle is twisted and slipped with mica. The piece is signed on the bottom. Kimberly’s work continues to evolve in creating more dynamic Picuris pottery!
