Hopi Pottery

The modern Hopi pottery revival grew out of anthropological research in the 1910's & later. Many of the Hopi men got jobs at the archeology sites and brought home some of the pot shards they were uncovering. A couple of the women (Nampayo & Polacca) began adding the old designs to their pots.

They sold well, so gradually pot making became an important part of their income. Their skills & fame grew. Now days Hopi pots are signed by the artist and the really good ones can sell for thousands of dollars.

The picture shows a classic style pot with the artist's signature on the bottom.


Nampayo Family

As pottery became an important income generator it evolved into a family business. differnt family members would specialize in different parts of the process. for example, the best artist would focus on decorating the pots while someone else might be coiling the clay and shaping the pots.

The Nampayo family is on of these.


Polacca Family

Another Hopi family tradition. There are now third and fourth generation potters selling their art of eBay,
