Hopi Black on Yellow Bowl by Nampeyo, c.1910 new
This superb example of Pueblo pottery is the distinct work of the Hopi master potter Nampeyo (1856-1942). The bowl's geometric design features the familiar themes of fretting and feathers. The line work is precise, as is the molding of the jar. The bold black design fired well, and the yellow clay slip developed the tonality from ivory to burnt orange that traditionally-fired Hopi yellowware pottery is prized for. The bowl measures 3 3/4" height and 7 1/2" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition. This is an excellent example of Nampeyo's work from the mature period of her artistic career.
