CHERYL NAHA NAMPEYO (1962– )
HOPI POLYCHROME MINIATURE SEED JAR circa 2010
Cheryl learned from her grandmother, the late Daisy Hooee Nampeyo (1906?–1994) and her mother, Shirley Benn, who worked with Daisy. Cheryl, six generations down from Nampeyo, makes small pieces that bring a smile something of a specialty. A while back, we had a matching set of three little jars infested with a circle of flute-playing Kokopelli ants. Cheryl paints beautifully and carefully, and we've always admired her little pieces. We showed one on page 71 of the first edition of our Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni and also on page 47 of our Collections of Southwestern Pottery. It'd be a better world if everybody had a grinning Koshare to brighten the day.
