Les Namingha credits his aunt, renowned Hopi potter Dextra Quotskuyva, for guiding him through the process of pottery making, which served as his artistic foundation. As a prolific contemporary artist, Namingha thrives on traditional motifs with modernist influences. Constantly manipulating form and design, every Namingha piece takes cultural symbols and brings them adeptly into present day, making the artist a true innovator bound only by his imagination. The painting on his pottery is unique in its small size and tight detail, the extent of which is rarely seen in the medium. Owning one of Namingha's works offers Native-inspired significance to any collection.
