Loren Ami

Flower Blossoms

6 1/2" H x 7" W x 4 1/2" deep

Loren was born at Winslow, Arizona in 1968. Loren was raised away from Hopiland. He grew up in Santa Fe, where his mother worked for the Indian Health Service. For his senior year, Loren and his mother moved back to Hopi. He was able to spend more time with his grandmothers Eleanor Ami and
Carol Namoki. Both were fine potters and an inspiration to Loren. Loren started working with clay in the early 1990's.

Dextra Quotskuyva saw Loren's talent and realized he wanted to be a serious potter. She encouraged him and helped him with his pottery. Loren paints his pottery with old Sikyatki designs. He is known for his beautiful polychrome canteens.

Loren produces some of the most finely polished pottery we've seen. We are always delighted to see the glowing polychrome designs and red slips shining through the luster of such a richly buffed finish.

He signs his pottery with Loren Ami with a spider, which is his clan symbol. He has been in several exhibitions, and in 1999 placed first in the canteen category at Indian Market in Santa Fe and in 2000 placed Second in the jar category.
