Shapes & Forms
Born into the Navajo Nation in 1951, Gloria Kahe married Samuel Kahe of Hopi around 1970. After that, she learned to make pottery from her mother-in-law, an Arizona Living Treasure, Marcella Kahe.
Gloria learned the Hopi way really well, then she started bringing in inluences from her Diné heritage. As she uses mostly Hopi yellow clay and incorporates a mix of Hopi and Diné symbols and imagery, her cross-cultural pieces are in high demand.
Valerie Kahe is Gloria's daughter, Karen Charley is her sister-in-law. Gloria signs her pieces: G. Kahe.
