Al Qöyawayma

  • Hopi
  • Pottery

I have the advantage of education with clay as my teacher. My challenge is to pass on to my viewers the wisdom and softness of the clay, and the forms and desert hues of my creations. The clay has led beyond the threshold of the modern world to see the way of my ancient Hopi people, to see the truth written in their hearts. With equal vigor I must pass on to the next generation that which I have been blessed to learn.
