5"w x 5.5"h

$ 275.00

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 jar has square sides and the rim is fluted or “undulates”.  The shape is creative and distinctive.  The piece has a darker coloration from the fire clouds but the mica shows through beautifully!  The jar is signed on the bottom.  Kimberly’s work continues to evolve in creating more dynamic Picuris pottery!
