Al Qoyawayma is famous for his pottery, but he has also created a series of bronzes.  This piece is entitled, “Hopi Maiden” and was first cast in 1991.  The design is inspired by Al’s clay work.  It has the flowing shape of a Hopi maiden.  The original piece in clay was a collaboration with note Hopi jeweler Charles Supplee (1959-2020).  Charles made gold and stone “jewelry” additions to the original clay piece.  On the bronze, those areas are simply polished.  The cloak of the Maiden is textured.  The piece is an edition of 30 and this is 7.    It is signed on the bottom near the base, ” Qoyawayma  Supplee”.  It is in excellent condition.
