Rondina Huma | Hopi Pueblo | Southwest Indian Pottery | Contemporary | signatureRondina Huma walked away with awards from the 1996 Santa Fe Indian Market.  One of her pieces was awarded "Best of Show," "Best of Division," and "Best Traditional Pottery."  She is recognized for her intricate designs, incorporating hundreds of small elements.  Her burnishing is exceptional and her painting of designs remarkable.

 

Rondina Huma has been one of the most sought after Hopi potters for over a decade now. She has been featured in many publications and her work is represented in major galleries and museums throughout the country. There is no mystery as to why she has won many awards over the years for her exquisite work. She deserves every accolade bestowed on her. Her pottery is traditional in every manner. She hand coils all her vessels and uses only vegetal and mineral paints. Traditional firing is carried out as well.

 

Condition: structurally in excellent condition.  There is some minor abrasion to the painted design in one small triangular design area near the rim.  A portion of the artist's signature is worn off but her name is clearly readable.

Provenance:  Adobe Gallery sold this to a client in Canada around 1985 and it was returned to the gallery for re-sale in 2005 at which time it was sold to a client in Texas from whose estate we have received it.
