Clara Claw Nampeyo was born in 1961. Carla Nampeyo Claw was born in 1961. She is the daughter of the well-known Hopi/Tewa potter Thomas Polacca. Carla learned his traditional way of making pottery;decorating the golden hued bowls with fine line painting. Her father, Thomas Polacca, developed a very contemporary style of carving using deep carvings depicting Kachinas, the Anasazi, and various animals, a style which Carla learned and used. Despite emulating these two styles, Carla went on to develop another style using a rich, chocolate slip depicting animal and Kachina carvings. Carla Nampeyo also does pottery in traditional Polychrome. Carla has won numerous awards for her pottery. Carla’s work can be viewed for purchase at Oneida Sky, Fine Art and Collectibles Gallery at Turning Stone.
