She is one of the great granddaughters of the famous "Nampeyo" known for reviving and expanding the beautiful ancient style of pottery called Sikyatki. She learned pottery making from her mother, Elva Nampeyo, and has been making pottery since 1979.
Adelle specializes in the handmade traditional Sikyatki polychrome pottery for which her family is famous. She now teaches her children the art of her ancestors so they can continue in her footsteps. This exquisite pottery vase was traditionally hand coiled and fired by Adelle. A unique addition to any pottery or Native American art collection.4 3/4 tall x 5 1/2? Long x 5 1/2 wide. The pottery is new but hand made and painted, so there may be imperfections. The Hopi pueblos are located in Northern Arizona, atop three large mesas. On First Mesa there is a long tradition of pottery making, that was ultimately shaped by the master potter Nampeyo at the turn of the 20th century. Nampeyo is credited with the revival of a prehistoric Hopi pottery type named Sikyatki, after an archaeological site near First Mesa. In addition to the distinct designs that Nampeyo revived, Hopi pottery is also known for it wonderful blushes. The blushes are created by a combination of the natural iron rich clay and the pit firing technique. It is the tonal yellow to dark orange surface of Hopi pottery that distinguishes it from the other Pueblos.
