Daisy Nampeyo pottery necklace Eleven miniature Nampeyo pots strung on a silver bead neacklace. Daisy was a Hopi from the famous Nampeyo pottery famly. She was married to a Zuni. In the 1940s she was married to Leo Poblano and they teamed to make beautiful inlay jewelry. Daisy attended an art institute in Paris where she learned mosaic art. She taught Leo with the techniques. Leo was killed while fighting forest fires in the early 50s. When my family moved from Zuni to Gallup, Daisy came with us to help Mom with the kids while Dad was bedridden for nearly a year because of back surgery. When Daisy returned to Zuni, she married Sydney Hooee. They moved west of the village. The Zuni men joked that Sydney wanted to keep his beautiful wife away from other men so he moved away from the village. Growing up a Nampeyo, Daisy had special pottery skills. She turned from jewelry to pottery making. She was singularly responsible for reviving Zuni pottery, which had all but disappeared. Each of these miniature pots is signed. The piece in the upper right has a broken handle. This was made by Daisy in the 60s. $895
