Rondina Huma  Artworks >>

Born in Keams Canyon, Arizona, Rondina has continuously lived in the Hopi village of Polacca since childhood. She has mastered the art of traditional Hopi Pottery without any commercial training, and has become one of the most influential Hopi potters working today. Her tight style and intricately painted pottery have changed the face of contemporary Hopi pottery. Each piece is coil built, fully stone polished and painted with native clays and bee-weed (black), and native fired. She has won the "Best of Show" award at Santa Fe Indian Market twice, 1986 and 1997. Her work is consistent and of the highest quality. Rondina signs her work with the Parrot symbol for her clan along with her name and Hopi-Tewa. Source altermann.com
