Pueblo pottery–making is a family affair, its matriarchs the founders of long lines of accomplished ceramic artists. Fannie Nampeyo is perhaps the most noted daughter-potter of Nampeyo of Hano, who revived fine Hopi ceramics in the late 1800s and whose legacy has so far passed through five generations of potters. The design that encircles this jar has great longevity in the family. Known as the migration pattern, it refers both to Hopi migrations and to water. Abstract, three-feathered bird wings help to create a sense of the movement that inspired the motif.
