Nona Naha was a Tewa-Hopi of the Corn Clan who began making pottery in 1988. She was the daughter of Sylvan and Edith Nash and the wife of Terry Naha. She learned to make pottery from Helen Naha and her daughters Sylvia and Rainy Naha.  This seedpot has a narrow base and a round top. There are two hummingbirds, or more likely, hummingbird moths, as the design.  Separating them is a large sunflower.  The wings extend around the piece.  It is a complex pattern painted with bee-weed and highlighted with burgundy clay.  The seedpot was traditionally fired.  It is signed on the bottom, “Nona Naha”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
