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
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!
