Garnet Pavatea (1915 - 1981)  Artworks >>

Garnet Pavatea had a long and productive career of pottery making and was a favorite of collectors of Hopi pottery. Her father was a Hopi and her mother a Tewa. She lived at the Tewa Village on First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation. She was an active potter from circa 1940 to circa 1981. She is best known and was fond of making plain red bowls and jars with triangular indentations around the rim as the sole decoration. Often, she made ladles to accompany her bowls. The Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff amassed a major collection of her work. She passed away in 1981. Source askart.com
