"Without Nampeyo, Hopi pottery may have been only an art form of the past.

Nampeyo started the revival of Hopi pottery, the so-called Sikyatki Revival, using prehistoric and historic Hopi designs. She is credited with the birth of contemporary Hopi pottery, now called Hano Polychrome.

She lived from 1860-1942, starting her life's work at 15.

Her three daughters and grandchildren have followed in her footsteps making beautiful pottery.

I have depicted Nampeyo as a young married woman working on the pottery designs she would have done at that time in her life."
