Early Yellowware Minimalist Bowl by Nampeyo, c.1900
This early example of Nampeyo’s yellowware dates to the turn of the century. The bowl features a bold minimal design that fits symmetrically inside the bowl. The overall feeling of the piece is architectural and monumental. The design incorporates Nampeyo’s “eye of the cloud” design with familiar avian themes, and overall suggests an abstracted tableta. The bowl fired with the exceptional tonality from ivory to yellow that Hopi yellowware is known for. The bowl measures 3 ½” height and 8 ¼” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
