Hopi Seed Jars by Reva Polacca Nampeyo new

Reva Polacca Nampeyo (1964- ) made these two seed jars in November of 2022. Both jars are completely traditionally made, from molding to painting and outdoor pit-firing. Reva is the sister of Vernida Polacca Nampeyo, and both are granddaughters of Fannie Nampeyo, who was the most talented and prolific potter of Nampeyo's children. Both jars are very symmetrically molded with classic Nampeyo family designs.

The jar on the left sports the classic bear claw or bat wing design, a design perfected by Nampeyo and passed down through the family. The design fits the jar well, and the mouth of the jar is framed by a traditional red square. The jar measures 4 1/4" height and 4 1/4" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.

The jar on the right is an excellent example of the migration design. Here, Reva has given the design a bolder look by framing it between two solid black rings. The jar measures 3 1/2" height and 4 3/4" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
