Nampeyo and the Sikyátki Revival

Celebrating the artistic ingenuity of Nampeyo, famed Tewa-Hopi potter, the de Young museum presents an installation of 32 pots from the collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The single-gallery exhibition highlights Nampeyo's work, juxtaposed with examples of Hopi pottery from her time. Exquisite ceramics made by ancestral Hopi artists demonstrate Nampeyo's sources of inspiration and artworks by four generations of her descendants attest to the master potter's enduring legacy.

During her lifetime, Nampeyo (ca. 1860-1942) was, and remains today, perhaps the most renowned potter from the American Southwest. She is celebrated for her incredible skill as a potter and painter and also for her ingenuity as a designer. Born in Hano Village, a Tewa community on Hopi's First Mesa in what is now Arizona, Nampeyo made pottery for her family and community but also sold works to the growing number of anthropologists, archaeologists, and tourists who visited Hopi. Soon, collectors across the country knew of Nampeyo and were eager to buy examples of her beautiful work.
