We asked Ida for something different and she did not disappoint!
Ida Sahmie brings life to traditional Navajo ceremonies in her unique pottery. All the clay and materials are gathered from Navajo land. The pottery is all coil built, stone polished and painted with natural clays and native materials and native fired.
She was a daughter-in-law of Priscilla Nampeyo and Ida continues to make beautifully formed pottery with wonderfully complex designs. She has won numerous awards for her pottery at events such as Santa Fe Indian Market.
Ida is the only Navajo potter creating this unique style of ethnographic pottery.
