Considered the true matriarch of the remaining Nampeyo family, Tonita is the eldest daughter of Fannie Nampeyo, and grand-daughter to the legendary Nampeyo who was credited as being instrumental in the revitalization of Hopi polychrome pottery.
In the footsteps of her forebears, Tonita stays true to her traditional roots, preferring to do everything the "old way." Her clay is still dug from deposits near her home. She still hand-coils and hand polishes every piece she does. Tonita remains loyal to many of the original Sikyatki ruins designs, as can be seen here in this beautiful vase.
The traditional "migration pattern" design appears around the entire vase. The rich orange and brown colors are achieved through a traditional process of pigmentation where natural vegetal and mineral dyes are used. Tonita has traditionally fired this piece as well - as can be seen in the subtle shifts in color around the base of the pot. Tonita is world-renown and appears in nearly every publication dealing with Hopi pottery. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the globe, and she has shown and placed at nearly every major venue throughout the Southwest.
Her work appears in Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery by Rick Dillingham, The Art of the Hopi by Jerry Jacka, and Hopi-Tewa Pottery: 500 Artists Biographies by Gregory Schaff as well as others
