This is the largest platter we have had in our gallery. It is stunning. Debbie explained to me that “all the designs in the middle represent all traditions of the Hopi. Yellow for sun, spots for rain, and the rain for Kivas and our mesa. The bird like end is for all the birds we use here in Hopi. I call the whole design “Night Prayers of the Hopi,” The dragon flies and symbols represent the stars and corn.” So difficult to fire this size plate outside, you can see the firing blue tint elements on the backside of the plate.
We are so pleased to add Debbie to our group of Hopi potters at NAC.
