Nampeyo, Fannie – Bowl with Blackbird Migration Pattern (1960’s)
This bowl by Fannie Nampeyo is a classic bowl shape. form. The design is a black bird migration pattern with the bird in black above the shoulder and the bird tail below the shoulder. The design has a great flow around the entire piece. It was traditionally fired creating the striking color variations on the surface. It’s not often that we see such complex painting on Fannie’s smaller pieces. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Fannie Nampeyo” and it is from the 1960’s.
