Description: 
In the late 1890s, Nampeyo, a Hopi woman, reintroduced the ancient style of Sikyatki pottery (1325-1625) to a community that had largely ceased making ceramics. Sikyatki pots are distinctive for their low shoulders, linear design motifs and dramatic use of black, brown and white paint. Nampeyo’s influence on other Hopi potters was immediate and continues to the present.
