4.5"w x 6.5"h

$ 150.00

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 wedding vase is a creative shape with the twisted handle and the organic flow of the spouts.  The vase has a darker coloration from the fire clouds but the mica shows through beautifully!  The vase is signed on the bottom.  Kimberly’s work continues to evolve in creating more dynamic Picuris pottery!
