Shouldered Jar with Corn Appliqué (#94)

Youvella Nampeyo comes from a distinguished family of potters; her mother was Fannie Nampeyo and her grandmother Nampeyo was the matriarch of contemporary Hopi-Tewa pottery. Her graceful and unadorned pots emphasize form and craft. The corn applique is a refined way to represent what others use paint to do.
