According to the Museum of Northern Arizona, Charlie’s known dates of production were 1933-1961. The Arizona State Museum states that she was a clan niece of Nampeyo of Hano and sometimes painted Nampeyo’s pottery. Other than these two comments, there is very little published information on Charlie.

She was a sister of Irene Shupla and cousins of Sadie Adams, Patty Maho, Ruth Paymella and grandmother to famed Hopi-Tewa artist Neil David, Sr.

Her pottery is desirable by collectors for its very high quality and warm orange glow. Her designs are beautifully conceived and executed. She often used stippling as seen on this bowl. She was a master potter.

Condition: There is one hairline crack at the rim; otherwise the bowl is in remarkable condition.
