Rachel Sahmie has had her hands wrapped around clay since she was a child, encouraged by her mother, Priscilla Namingha Nampeyo, who only had encouragement and positive words to share with her children when it came to making pottery. Today Rachel is an accomplished potter whose works are in many fine art galleries, museums and people?s homes. She is inspired by nature and birds in particular, as well as by old pot shards.

In this workshop Rachel will share how she loves best to create her beautiful pottery using traditional Hopi materials, methods and tools. You?ll be making small pots made from Hopi clay, decorated with paint made from traditional plants and minerals, using brushes made from Yucca, using the hand-coiled method, and fired in sheep dung. While you?re invited to use Hopi designs, feel free to bring along your own design ideas, or plan on a taking home a simple, pure pot free of design that allows the natural textures to tell their own story.

This class is suitable for both beginner and experienced potters.

This workshop is part of the Sedona Summer Colony Residency Program , an artist-in-residence partnership project between Verde Valley School and the Sedona Arts Center.
