Nampeyo, James Garcia – Wide Bowl with Eagle Tail Design
James Garcia Nampeyo is a son of Leah Garcia Nampeyo, a grandson of Fannie Nampeyo and a great-grandson of Nampeyo of Hano. This is a wide and very flat shoulder jar by James. This wide, flat shape is one which is inspired by the historic Siyatki pottery from the area. This bowl is fully stone polished and painted with the classic eagle tail design. The neck of the bowl is polished a deep red. The eagle tails extend down over the side of the bowl. They are painted with a deep red clay slip along with bee-weed (black). The bowl is traditionally fired to give it the coloration with some slight blushes. It is signed on the bottom, “James G. Nampeyo”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
