In the early 1900s, both Nampeyo and her daughter, Annie, made black-on-red pottery.  Annie is credited with outlining some of the design with white occasionally. How many other potters made similar styles is not known.  Examples have been documented by Evelyn Poolheco, Sadie Adams, Emogene Lomakema, Nellie Nampeyo, Lena Chino Charlie, and other contemporary potters,  so it is difficult to make an attribution when one is not signed. This small bowl has the name Paqua written in pencil but it is doubtful that it was written by the potter but most likely some someone making an attribution.  Paqua, of course, was the first Frog Woman.

The bowl has a Sikyatki-style stylized bird design on the interior, a black rim, and no design on the exterior.


Condition: this Hopi-Tewa Black on Red Small Bowl is in very good condition with minor abrasions

Provenance: from the collection of a family from Colorado

Recommended Reading: Contemporary Hopi Pottery by Laura Graves Allen, Museum of Northern Arizona
