Hopi Polychrome Moth Seed Jar by Vernida Polacca Nampeyo new
This spectacularly disc-like seed jar is the work of Hopi master potter Vernida Polacca Nampeyo. Vernida (1955- ) is the great-granddaughter of Nampeyo and the granddaughter of Fannie, Nampeyo's most prolific and skilled potting daughter. Fannie taught Vernida pottery-making from a young age. For decades, Vernida has made traditional Hopi pottery the way Fannie taught her, and she is well-known for precisely executing family designs, including this moth design. When asked about the moth design, Vernida pointed out that moths are important pollinators that are good for crops. The jar measures 3 1/4" height and 10 3/4" diameter, and was fired in August 2023.
