About this Work

Historically ceramics were the domain of female artists among the Pueblo and Hopi peoples of the American southwest. The style of pottery seen here, known as Sikyatki-revival pottery, is credited to Nampeyo, a Tewa-Hopi artist who worked with the trader Thomas Keam and developed her work in part based upon objects excavated by Jesse Fewkes. During this period, at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, there was a raise in demand for Native American ceramics from those outside of the community. The Sikyatki-revival was so popular that there were Hopi women on all three mesas working in this style.
