Hopi Tile by Rachel Sahmie
This contemporary Hopi tile was traditionally made and fired outdoors by Rachel Sahmie at her home at Polacca, Arizona. It features a design of an abstracted kachina face. The tile is clearly signed on the back with Rachel's signature, "Nampeyo Koo Loo." It measures 5" height and 3 5/8" width, and is in excellent original condition. Rachel Sahmie is a fifth generation master potter at First Mesa, and is the great-great-granddaughter of Nampeyo (1856-1942), the matriarch of Hopi pottery.
