Nampeyo, Camille “Hisi” – Small Bowl with Hopi Birds
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 the smaller pieces of her pottery. It is stone polished and painted with two Nampeyo style Hopi birds on the top. It is painted with bee-weed and a red clay slip. Note the subtle variations in color from the firing. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom.
