This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Daisy Hooee Nampeyo (c. 1905-1994)

Daisy Hooee Nampeyo, daughter of Nampeyo’s eldest child Annie, suffered from an eye affliction that prompted a wealthy visiting Californian, Anita Baldwin, to take her to California for treatment while she was in her teens. Daisy lived with Mrs. Baldwin for several years, and then her patroness afforded her the opportunity to study art at the School of Fine Arts in Paris.

Returning to the Southwest in her early 20s, Daisy also returned to traditional pottery arts, working with her female relatives, including her mother Annie and sister Rachel. As her grandmother had before her, Daisy mined the rich sources of design inspiration from excavated ancestral pottery, in this case the material unearthed from the Peabody Museum at Harvard Univer-sity’s Awatovi expedition of the mid-1930s.

She lived at the Pueblo of Zuni while married first to jewelry artist Leo Poblano and then to Sidney Hooee.

Much of Daisy’s pottery reflects the influence of the ancient Zuni pottery traditions, such as the use of white clay and Rio Grande-style, high-shouldered water jars.


This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A grand daughter of Nampeyo, known as The Old Lady, Daisy Nampeyo created pottery that showed the influence of Zuni traditions with the use of white clay and the high-shouldered water jars.

She was born approximately 1900. As a teenager, she had an eye affliction that led a wealthy California woman, Anita Baldwin, to take her to California for treatment. Baldwin was keenly aware of the young woman's talents and sent her to Paris to study at the School of Fine Arts.

Daisy returned and worked at her pottery in Arizona with her female relatives, and took much inspiration from unearthed ancestral ruins. She lived at the Pueblo of Zuni, first married to jeweler Leo Poblano and then to Sidney Hooee.
