Hopi-Tewa small bowl and ladle, kiln-fired.
Purchased on 5/25/99 from Juanita when I visited her home on Hano plaza. She is losing her memory and was not sure who I was, though she remembers the sourdough starter I gave her and the bread we made several years ago. She may no longer be able to arrange an outdoor firing; perhaps these pots were fired in Tom Polacca’s kiln. Born in 1915, she died in 2006. For other Juanita pots, see 1994-10, 2004-02, and 2004-09.
