Setalla, Agnes – Tile with Hopi Hummingbird
Agnes Setalla is a daughter of noted potter Pauline Setalla and a niece of Eunice “Fawn” Navasie. She is also the sister of Dee Setalla and Stetson Setalla. She learned to make pottery from her mother and her aunt. Her pieces are signed with her name and also a bear paw, as she is bear clan. This tile has a classic Hopi-Tewa hummingbird as the design. The bird is painted with bee-weed (black) and two different clay slips. It is a very intricately designed piece. The tile was traditionally fired. It is signed on the back. A lucite stand and shipping are included.
