This new polychrome bowl is hand coiled, painted with natural pigments and slips, and traditionally fired outside. Nicely shaped and designed, it is a lovely example of Debbie’s work that is based on her Hopi Tewa traditions and culture. She explains the painting in this way: “On this seed pot I call it the way of life. All the designs represent different things representing the Hopi people. Spots (rain) red and maroon for the sun, and the dark areas for the night.” The symbols and patterns cover the entire surface of the bowl. It is a wonderful new bowl by Debbie. Debbie was honored with being awarded the Helen Naha Memorial Award from the 2016 Santa Fe Indian Market. That was very special for her!
