Ida Sahmie (b.1960) depicts traditional Navajo ceremonies and imagery from sand paintings on her unique pottery. All the clay and materials are gathered from Navajo land. The pottery is all coil built, stone polished, painted with natural clay, and native fired. She is a daughter-in-law of Priscilla Nampeyo and continues to make beautifully formed pottery with wonderfully complex designs. She has won numerous awards for her pottery at events such as Santa Fe Indian Market. She is the only Navajo potter creating this unique style of ethnographic pottery.
