Hopi Yellowware Jar with Dimpled Shoulder by Nellie Douma Nampeyo
Nellie Douma Nampeyo (1896-1978) was the daughter of Nampeyo, the matriarch of modern Hopi pottery, and along with her sisters Fannie and Annie, learned pottery-making from her mother. The jar features a red slipped shoulder with a dimpled decoration, and the design painted below is classic Hopi. This decoration shows direct influence from Nampeyo, who also experimented with dimpling. The jar has a big presence. Nellie was not overly productive as a potter, and this is a great example of her work. It measures 7” height and 4 ½” diameter and is in excellent original condition.
