About the Artist:

The outstanding 20th-century Hopi potter, Garnet Pavatea (1915-1981) was one of the most talented Hopi potters of the second half of the 20th Century. Her potting is impeccable, her painting precise, and her polish is out of this world good.  Garnet Pavatea perfected a style all her own, drawing many design elements from ancient Sikyatki pottery.
