Honyumptewa, Kimberly Riley – Picuris Micaceous Water Jar
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 water jar is thin-walled and traditionally fired. There are striking fired clouds near the base of the piece. The jar is signed on the bottom. Kimberly’s work continues to evolve in creating more dynamic Picuris pottery!
