Hopi Yellowware Jar by Rachel Namingha
Rachel Namingha (1903-1985) was the daughter of Annie Healing and the granddaughter of Nampeyo. She is the grandmother of the Sahmie sisters, and the mother of Dextra Quotskuyva and Priscilla Namingha—who all became master potters in the family tradition. Rachel lived with her mother and Nampeyo at the Tewa village on First Mesa, and learned pottery-making from Nampeyo directly. This jar has a nice weight to it and is well-molded, and features a Sikyatki Revival design. It is clearly signed “Rachel Nampeyo,” and is in original condition. Measures 6 ¾” height and 7” diameter.
