Unpainted Hopi-Tewa pot with appliqué of two ears of corn and an irregular opening and good blushing. Iris Youvella Nampeyo is one of Fannie’s four daughters. Almost all of Iris’s recent productions are variations of this design. The double ear of corn and the fine blushing make this a particularly good example of her work.

Purchase History:
On 4/14/03, this pot did not meet its minimum bid on eBay and I wrote Bob Lewis in Holbrook, AZ, who agreed to sell me the pot directly.
