Rondina Huma

Star Shard Jar

5 1/4" H x 7 1/2" D


Rondina Huma is one of the most highly sought after and one of the most widely celebrated Hopi pottery makers of all time. Her pieces consistently win awards at all the major shows - including most recently at Santa Fe's Indian Market where she took first place in pottery. Additionally she has been featured in every major publication and can be found in exclusive galleries and museum collections around the world.

We are extremely excited to have this rare masterpiece by Rondina. True to form, this shard design is characteristic of her award winning work and expertly displays her traditional heritage and exceptional skills. This piece has a unique shape and is actually an improvement on earlier shard designs in that the designs are smaller than they have ever been. This is a first of a kind.

This piece features a myriad of designs all drawing from her roots as a traditional Hopi potter. With her home at First Mesa near the old ruins of Sikyatki, where Nampeyo first drew her inspiration, Rondina is afforded the special opportunity to reflect and create special pieces that exhibit that heritage.

Rondina's potteries are always traditional in every sense. Her vessels are always hand coiled and hand polished, with natural vegetal and mineral pigments used to give life to her designs. Even the inside of her bowl has been polished smooth.

She has signed with her clan symbol, the parrot, along with her name, Rondina Huma: Hopi / Tewa.

 

 

Some have flattered her by following in her footsteps, but Rondina will always be the original.
