Fawn Navasie-Garcia, “formerly Little Fawn”, was born in 1959 into the Hopi reservation. She was inspired to continue the family tradition of making pottery by her late mother, the famous “Eunice (original Fawn) Navasie”. Eunice taught Fawn the fundamentals of traditional Hopi pottery making. Early on, Fawn specialized in the white slip pottery her mother taught her to make which, according to Fawn, is much more difficult.

Fawn has been making pottery since 1979 and specializes in elegant polychrome buff or yellow slipped pottery. Fawn coils a wide variety of shapes like wedding vases, egg shaped pots and bowls. Her designs originate from the Sikyatki Ruins (yellow earth, it’s the name of a former village at the Hopi reservation located two miles north of First Mesa). Fawn signs her pottery: Fawn, followed by a fawn hoofprint.
