Alton Komalestewa, a Hopi-Tewa, was married to the daughter of Helen Shupla of Santa Clara Pueblo and Kenneth Shupla, a Hopi Pueblo carver. He lived with the Shuplas at Santa Clara Pueblo and even learned pottery-making from Helen—thus the resemblance in style to her work. Following the deaths of all the Shuplas, Alton returned to the Hopi Reservation in Arizona.
