Large Hopi Polychrome Open Bowl by Jeremy Adams Nampeyo
Jeremy Adams Nampeyo fired this large Hopi open bowl in August of 2021. Jeremy is a young, up-and-coming sixth generation Nampeyo family traditional potter, who learned pottery-making from his mother, Vernida Polacca Nampeyo. Vernida is the great-granddaughter of Nampeyo, and granddaughter of Fannie, Nampeyo's most masterful potting daughter, who instructed Vernida in the family tradition. Jeremy took inspiration for the design and form of this bowl directly from a large open bowl by Nampeyo in Steve Elmore's collection. The red sky band with eagle tail feathers and avian themes are all classic examples of Nampeyo's designs. The bowl measures 3 1/2" height and 13 1/4" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition. The last photo shows Jeremy and Vernida posing with the bowl. We are proud to represent Jeremy's work as he continues to master the traditional pottery his family is known for.
