Lomakema, Claudina – Wide Bowl with 16 Tablitas (1970’s)
Clauinda Lomakema is a Hopi potter from Sichomovi, which is the center village on First Mesa, Hopi. She was part of the revival of Hopi pottery (mostly from Second Mesa) in the 1970’s. This bowl is slipped white and painted with bee-weed (black) and a red clay slip. It has 16 tablitas as the design encircling the bowl. Each is very intricately painted. The bowl is traditionally fired so there are light blushes on the surface. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Claudina Lomakema”.
