Rachel Sahmie is a daughter of noted potter Priscilla Nampeyo and a descendant of Nampeyo of Hano.  She is a sister of noted potters Jean Sahmie and Bonnie Sahmie.  This is a classic Hopi-Tewa shape canteen.  On the front is painted a Butterfly Maiden Katsina.  She is surrounded by clouds and butterfly designs.  It was traditionally fired which creates a very slight blush on the surface.  The canteen is signed on the bottom with her name “Koo Loo”.
