Camille “Hisi” Quotskuyva learned to make pottery from her mother, Dextra Quotskuyva, a sister of noted painter Dan Namingha and a descendant of Nampeyo of Hano, Annie Healing and Rachel Nampeyo.  She is known for her use of traditional imagery and the delicate painting of her designs.  This bowl is a classic Sikyatki shape with a wide shoulder and flatness of the overall vessel.  The top has a red polished flower design.  On the sides are seven moths painted with bee-weed.  They are detailed on the wings.  The bowl is signed on the bottom, “Hisi” and a corn plant for Corn Clan.  Note the subtle variations in color from the firing.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
