Nona Naha is of Hopi-Tewa heritage and of the Corn Clan. She has been active potting since 1988. Nona is the daughter of Sylvan and Edith Nash, and wife of Terry Naha. She learned the art of pottery making from Feather Woman – Helen Naha, and Feather Woman’s daughters – Sylvia and Rainy Naha. Our last visit with her was great, lots of fun, and we brought back some treasures from this artist with ever increasing popularity that is well deserved. Her work has increased in value very well over the last four years and her work is considered a prudent investment as well as a delight to see and hold.
“Nona Naha produces some of the thinnest pottery at Hopi. She has stated that she loves the feeling of relief and satisfaction when the pot is completed. “The process for me is long, since I take time to do my best” says Nona. “I also appreciate the reaction of the buyers who acknowledge art and the work behind it.” – from “Hopi-Tewa Pottery:500 Artist Biographies” (p. 79) by Gregory Schaaf.
Nona has taken many awards at shows throughout the Southwest, including 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall at the Hopi Show in Flagstaff, Arizona at the Museum of Northern Arizona. She has become very well known for this style of beautiful seed pot featuring turtles, lizards, butterflies and traditional patterns usually measuring four or five inches in diameter and a few inches in depth.
