Hisi Nampeyo

Butterfly Mesas

4 1/2" H x 5 1/4" D

As one of the youngest and most talent Hopi pottery artists of today, Hisi Nampeyo (Camille Quotskuyva) has really made a name for herself.

She is the daughter of world-famous Hopi potter Dextra Quotskuyva and has obviously inherited some of the family skill. Her work ranges from the unique and distinct, to classic Hopi themes with traditional motifs like the stylized moths pictured here.

Her work can be found in some of the most prestigious galleries and discriminating private collections.

We're pleased to present this beautiful innovative work by one of the talented young Hopi potters of today. This piece incorporates a red and brown slip, with butterfly images containing Hopi symbols in them - etched into the pottery surface. The shoulder of the pot where the red and brown meet makes up the horizon, where various mesas and buttes rise up to meet the floating butterflies.

She appears in nearly every major publication on Hopi-Tewa pottery, including Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery by Rick Dillingham, The Art of the Hopi by Jerry Jacka, and Hopi-Tewa Pottery: 500 Artists Biographies by Gregory Schaff as well as others.

She has signed "Hisi Nampeyo," and has dated the pottery October of 2004. It's fresh from the fire!
