Rare, Large Sherd Jar by Rachel Sahmie updated
This Hopi storage jar by Rachel Sahmie features a unique collage of many different Hopi designs that she has used over her long career. Here, Rachel is freewheeling with many different designs to create a complex mosaic inspired by ancient potsherds. This is one of the first jars Rachel made in homage to the potsherds. The jar has an exceptionally small base, something both Rachel and her mother Priscilla Namingha Nampeyo are known for. The jar measures 11 ½” height and 12” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
