Nampeyo, Leah – Mini Bowl with Corn Design (1960’s)
Leah Nampeyo was a daughter of noted potter Fannie Nampeyo. This is a miniature bowl that is fully polished. The exterior is painted with a checkerboard corn pattern. It encircles the bowl. This style of checkerboard pattern is one that is seen during a particular period of work by Nampeyo of Hano. It is signed on the side, “Leah Nampeyo”. The bowl is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It’s not often that we see her work in miniature!
