Adelle Lalo Nampeyo is a granddaughter of Fannie Nampeyo and daughter of Elva Tewaguna Nampeyo. She has been making pottery since 1979. Most of her pottery is decorated with traditional Nampeyo family fine line designs or eagle tails. Her work is hand coiled, hand painted and traditionally fired using sheep dung which accounts for the variety in coloring. She firmly believes that she needs to continue making pottery the traditional way because of her strong spiritual beliefs. Adelle’s work is included in Dr. Gregory Schaaf’s “Hopi-Tewa Pottery”, “Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery” by Rick Dillingham, and the Native American Resource Collection at the Heard Museum. She believes in the old ways and creates her work in that spirit that joins the human spirit and Mother Earth as one.
