Fannie Nampeyo Pottery - C3924ZFannie won her first Blue Ribbon in 1961 from the Museum of Northern Arizona at the annual Hopi Show.  Her pottery was selected for several museum exhibits in the 1990s.  Since she was the youngest daughter of Nampeyo and Lesou, she was better known, personally, by many collectors, most of whom never met Annie or Nellie.  She was still actively making pottery in the mid-1980s.


One of Fannie's favorite designs was the migration pattern-supposedly delineating the migration of the Hopi people through four worlds.  Whether it was her favorite or whether she produced it because it was collectors' favorite is unknown, but it is the one she seems to have made more often.
