Rachel Namingha Nampeyo (1903-1985) is the daughter of Annie Healing Nampeyo (1884-1968) and granddaughter of Nampeyo (1859 â1942) who is internationally known as the mother of the SikyÃ¡tki Revival movement and one of the most important potters in the world. Nampeyo holds the world record for Southwest American Indian pottery sale, in 2010 Bonhams Auction House sold an original Nampeyo pot for $350,000.00
Nampeyo pottery has always been a family affair, each generation was immersed in the craft from and early age and would take over aspects of production as time went on. Loss of vision plagued each of the Nampeyoâs at a relatively early age and much of the detailed painting had to be done by the younger generation. Hence, that is why it is extremely hard to tell the difference between Nampeyo/Annie/Rachelâs work. This particular pot is very old, a very early piece by Rachel Namingha Nampeyo. It was purchased by our client in 2011 from the reputable Oggâs Hogan in Prescott, AZ. There is a bit of linage jotted down on a receipt about this piece that will be included. It has been in the Ogg family since 1950 and was purchased from the Hicks Collection. Not many Rachel Nampeyo
