This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Dextra Quotskuyva Nampeyo (b. 1928)

Dextra Quotskuyva, daughter of Annie Nampeyo's daughter Rachel, is an unsurpassed pottery artist. Throughout the 30-plus years of her artistic career, Dextra has participated in major museum and gallery exhibitions across the United States and has received numerous honors, including a 1995 Arizona Living Treasures award and a 1998 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Arizona State Museum in Tucson.

Dextra turned to pottery only in her mid-30s. At first, following the advice of her mother to stay true to the old styles, Dextra’s design repertoire was limited to traditional Nampeyo migration and bird designs. But after her mother passed away in 1985, Dextra felt at greater liberty to express her personal creativity. She recently noted, “As individuals we can do whatever is inside us. It is expressing yourself, and we all have different ways of expressing ourselves.”

Grounded in superlative building and painting techniques, Dextra has experimented with contrasting surface treatments, whimsical narrative content, and innovative shapes. Moreover, through her own inventiveness she has validated the personal explorations of her students, including daughter Hisi, nephews Les Namingha and Steve Lucas, Steve’s wife Yvonne, and Loren Ami.
