Hopi Seed Jar with Eagle Tail Design by Rachel Sahmie
This is a seed jar by Hopi master potter Rachel Sahmie. Rachel is the great-great-granddaughter of Nampeyo (1856-1942), the matriarch of Hopi pottery. On this jar, Rachel has drawn the classic Nampeyo family eagle tail design, with the feathers dropping down the sides of the jar. Rachel squared off the mouth in red, another Nampeyo family hallmark. The jar measures 5" height and 7 1/2" diameter, and was fired traditionally in February 2021. An excellent example of Nampeyo family pottery, signed "Nampeyo Koo-Loo." Complimentary shipping included.
