Hopi Polychrome Seed Jar with Moth Design by Jeremy Adams Nampeyo new

Hopi potter Jeremy Adams Nampeyo fired this polychrome seed jar in April 2022. 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.

On this jar, Jeremy painted a traditional Nampeyo family moth design. Four moths fly around the symmetrically-molded jar with panels of traditional Hopi designs. The jar measures 5" height and 9" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
