Miniature Arizona Hopi Indian pottery bowl Patricia Honie (1919-2001)
- Source: eBay
I understand that famous Hopi Artist Patricia Honie (1919-2001) was from the village of Sichomovi on First Mesa, Hopi Reservation; Navajo County; Arizona. And that most potters on the Hopi Reservation are descendants of the New Mexico Rio Grande Valley pueblos that moved to the Hopi Reservation during the Spanish conquest of the Southwest. They are referred to as Hopi-Tewa and they live mostly on First Mesa. But there are also potters at Hopi who trace their origins to the original Hopi, not the Tewa Indians. Among them are Patricia Honie . This miniature Hopi polychrome bowl is decorated with a geometric patterns and stylized parrot tails. Honie's signature is on bottom, in brown. This small pottery bowl measures about 3" at the largest diameter and stands about 2.25" tall. Some lost paint, no cracks or flakes (see photos). Shipping includes insurance and signature confirmation. Thanks for looking.
