Emma Naha, a Hopi potter from Polacca at the base of First Mesa, has been actively potting since 1970. She is known for making small seed jars with Sikyatki designs. This pot has been made in the traditional way, from gathering, coiling, hand-forming and painting the clay to firing outdoors.
Emma Naha is the widow of well known Hopi artist Ray Naha.
She is also the mother of Ray Jr., Shannon, and Marty Naha - all three of which have gone on to become accomplished artists in their own right.
The piece was hand coiled and painted in the traditional methods and designs. It is signed Emma Naha.
