Nampeyo, Camille “Hisi” – Jar with Carved Designs (1990’s)
Camille “Hisi” Quotskuyva learned to make pottery from her mother, Dextra Quotskuyva. She is 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 is one of her more contemporary style of pieces. The bowl is matte and has carved abstract designs on the surface. The rim is also asymmetric and with a crackled appearance. The piece was traditionally fired with slight blushes on the surface. It is signed on the bottom in the clay. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. The piece comes to us from the collection of Georgia Loloma, the wife of noted Hopi jeweler Charles Loloma.
