Artist Signature Source: Reference: Hopi-Tewa Pottery: 500 Artist Biographies, by Gregory Schaaf. Hopi Pueblo artist Emogene Lomakema was known for her pottery jars bowls, canteens, cookie jars, plainware jars, cylinder vases in the following styles: black-on-red and black-on-white, black-and-red-on-yellow.  She has been extensively collected by the Museum of Northern Arizona, Flagstaff. She had a long and successful life and was a favorite of collectors. She was not active later in her life so there is very little of her pottery seen on the market today.

Emogene Lomakema (1901-1999*) was a resident of the village of Walpi, at the far tip of First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation located in the U.S. State of Arizona.  Hopi Pueblo is in the middle of the Navajo Nation.
