James G. Nampeyo

Sikyatki Moths

3 1/2" H x 5" D

James Garcia Nampeyo is a talented potter from First Mesa. He is descended from a long line of Hopi legends. He is the nephew of the late Tom Polacca, and great-grandson of the famed Nampeyo. He was also married to the talented Hopi potter, Fawn Navasie.

James' work has become highly collectible. His pottery has always exhibited qualities superior in Hopi pottery, as his most of his designs are unique and distinct.

James credits his grandmother, Fannie Nampeyo, with encouraging him to begin making pottery at an early age. He remains loyal to the traditional designs revitalized by his great-grandmother. Occassionaly, he and his wife, Fawn, will collaborate on larger pieces.

James has shown at several major venues throughout the Southwest, such as Heard Museum, Museum of Northern Arizona, and Santa Fe Indian Market.

He appears in various publications dealing with fine Hopi art, including Hopi Tewa Pottery: 500 Artist Biographies by Gregory Schaaf, p. 108; and Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery by Rick Dillingham, p. 23.
