Laura Chapella Tomosie (1907-1977) was a daughter of Poui and Toby White and a sister of Grace Chapella, Dalee and Bert Youvella.  She began making pottery in the 1930’s but was never as famous as her sister Grace.  It is said that she only spoke Hopi-Tewa and would negotiate with by raising fingers to indicate the price of an object.  This plate is made with the Hopi red clay. It is painted with bee-weed (black) and the design is outlined in white. It is a classic Hopi-Tewa bird as the design. The plate itself has just a small rim.  It is signed on the back “Laura Tomosie”.  It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair but some wear to the painted areas.
