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 is one of her classic shapes with an elongated neck and a flared rim. The entire jar is fully polished and the inside of the neck (as far as you can reach!) is polished red.  The shoulder of the jar is painted with a connecting eagle tail pattern.  It is painted with her classic thin lines and perfect symmetry.  The black is painted with bee-weed and the jar is traditionally fired to create the fire clouds on the surface.  It is signed on the bottom, “Hisi Nampeyo”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is from the late 1990’s.
