Hopi Polychrome Seed Jar by Vernida Polacca Nampeyo

Hopi master potter Vernida Polacca Nampeyo (1955- ) made this polychrome seed jar in 2009. Vernida is the great-granddaughter of Nampeyo and the granddaughter of Fannie, Nampeyo's most prolific and skilled potting daughter. Fannie taught Vernida pottery-making. For decades, Vernida made traditional Hopi pottery the way Fannie taught her, and she is well-known for precisely executing family designs, including this variation of an eagle tail design. This exceptional example of Vernida's work shows her own original take on a traditional family design. Vernida utilized a deeper maroon pigment on this jar in addition to her warmer red, which fired well. The jar measures 3 1/2" height and 5 1/4" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
