Hopi Bowl

Violet Huma

This traditional bowl features the black-on-buff decoration typical of Hopi pottery. Violet Huma is a well-known potter from the First Mesa region of the Hopi Reservation. Her work is included in the collection of the National Museum of the American Indian and was featured in Arizona Highways magazine. This particular piece was a gift to United States Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor from Robert Henry, former Judge for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and current President of Oklahoma City University. It was donated to the Oklahoma Judicial Center Collection by Justice O’Connor.
