“Lawrence Namoki could be the finest contemporary Hopi potter of his time. His pottery is both carved and painted with the highest detail.His signature pottery almost seems to be made of wood rather than hand dug clay…. Lawrence is highly spiritual and a great teacher of the Hopi beliefs. He has been featured in magazines, reference books, and his award winning pottery graces the Smithsonian. Every line and symbol mean something and he names every original piece. All colors are minerals from the earth, no paint is used. His famed carved and textured pieces, usually show Hopi kachinas and other cultural symbols.
