Our selection of Hopi pottery leads the industry in quality and value. We have Hopi pottery designs that will be an asset to any art collection.

Today's Hopi pottery designs reflect various clans that have put their own stamp and style into this wonderful form of art for hundreds of years. Hopi pottery is an evolving art that captures the rich cultural history of the Hopi tribe while developing new artistic styles and designs.
Like many other tribes and clans, Hopi pottery employs the use of symbols. Some symbols have retained their meaning for hundreds or thousands of years while others have been lost to time. Common imagery you'll see on our Hopi pottery for sale includes stunning landscapes, rain, lightning, thunder and rainwater.
Hopi Indian pottery uses symbols to represent aspects of everyday life as well as culturally and spiritually significant symbols. While some Hopi pottery designs portray specific symbols or ideas, others are the result of the artist's personal vision and taste.
