Artist Lorne Honyumptewa recalls growing up on Picuris Pueblo with this beautiful piece. He was inspired by the many historic Puebloan potsherds that he and his friends would find when they were outside playing, and that can still be found in many areas of Northern New Mexico. He always wondered at the symbols and tried to decipher what his ancestors were saying, the stories and myths they were representing in their pottery. The meanings of some symbols are still well known to Puebloan peoples today, yet many are lost. They offered to Honyumptewa a mysterious connection to his culture and history that was always compelling to him.
He has recreated these potsherds and arranged them in lines around the hem and cuffs and running up and down both the front and back sides. On the golden silk they stand out and yet also look as thought they could be lying on some golden sandstone of New Mexico, waiting to be discovered. Honyumptewa thinks of the sherds as beautiful miniature works of art, and has made them look that way with this stunning coat.
Wear over basic black with Southwest silver jewelry to a special event and celebrate your love of Southwest Native culture.

Lorne Honyumptewa's Bio

Hopi/Picuris Pueblo, New Mexico

“I am a Hopi/Picuris 2D artist and illustrator. I was born in 1979 in Tuba City, Arizona. My mother is Diane Caroline Sine, from Picuris Pueblo, and she works with traditional micaceous pottery. My father is a well-known Hopi Kachina doll carver from Lower Moenkopi, Stetson Honyumptewa. I have been into art all my life, growing up with my father especially. I got a lot of inspiration from him and being around galleries that featured all types of art. Looking at Southwest Art magazines always got my mind going, especially natural scenes, sunsets and landscapes.”

“I graduated from Pojoaque High School in New Mexico and realized I had a talent that I was too modest to announce or display. I wanted to go to the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, but Pojoaque High School was as far as I got. I like to work with pen and pencil for fine details and creating art that satisfies the eyes and takes time and energy from the mind, body and spirit. I want my art to bring good energy and vibes to all who encounter it, for we are all one.”

“In 2008, I got my first blue ribbon for a pen and ink drawing of Kachinas in a ceremony at one of the Hopi Mesas. I got pumped up to do more, and add color to it, and got another blue ribbon for a White Bear Kachina in a winter wonderland in the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff, Arizona. Since then, I have been in Indian Markets at Santa Fe.”
