Jean Sahme

Jean Sahme is among the most famous of the Nampeyo
family of potters. Her work is represented in many Museum
collections (including the Smithsonian Institute) as well
 as in most books on Native American Pottery.

Nampeyo

Nampeyo's earliest recorded pottery was made
 around 1896.Nampeyo (1860-1942) is credited with
 beginning the revival of modern Hopi pottery.

Jean Sahme continues the Nampeyo family tradition of
using ancient Sikyatki designs in her pottery. But, she has
moved her pottery forward by adding modern designs as
 well. Perhaps, what strikes an observer first is how
perfectly balanced her pottery is painted.

One design effortlessly flows to the next. Yet, the
pottery itself is quite substantial... made so well. Jean
 makes her own clay and paints from material found
on the reservation. She does not us a kiln but
literally fires her pottery in a open fire.
