Marty and Elvira Naha Nampeyo
This husband and wife team is quickly rising to the top of their division. Known for their development of the incised red ware (introduced by Elvira’s father, Tom Polacca), Marty and Elvira have nearly perfected the Kachina element captured in each of their unique pieces. Both Marty and Elvira come from a long line of potters. Elvira being the Great-Granddaughter of Nampeyo, and Marty is the son of Emma Naha. Their heritage and involvement with daily Hopi culture has given them an advantage. They have shown their pottery throughout the Southwest. Marty and Elvira’s pieces can be seen in many publications and museums dealing with elaborate Indian art.
