Nampeyo

Black-on-red shallow bowl (ca. 1926)

In July of 1926, Harold S. Gladwin, Director of Gila Pueblo Foundation in Globe, Arizona, purchased examples of the stages in pottery manufacture from Nampeyo. Included in the series is this bowl, the only example of red slipped ware by Nampeyo in the collection. It bears a central stylized bird design motif common to the late prehistoric Sikyatki wares.
