Rare Hopi Red and Yellow Slip Bowl by Nampeyo, c.1900
Steve Elmore Indian Art
This important bowl is one of only a few examples where Nampeyo experimented with split slips. Nampeyo made this bowl around 1900. The design is classic Sikyatki Revival, with an abstract avian theme on the bottom featuring her well-known swirl with tail feathers. At the top, on the red section of the bowl, the design has a unique white outline. Additionally, the rim of the bowl has Nampeyo's signature extra coil. The bowl measures 3 3/8” height and 9 3/8” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
