Hotevilla Glassworks is the first and only Hopi owned working glassblowing studio and gallery. In addition to unique Hopi glass artistry by Ramson Lomatewama and others, the gallery features traditional Hopi katsina dolls, Third Mesa basketry, Hopi jewelry, and other local arts and crafts. Visitors who stop by will have the opportunity to watch and visit with local artists as they work. Not only do the artists produce their work onsite, they enjoy sharing their artistic vision and knowledge of the Hopi culture from which it springs with visitors.
Ramson, who is the first Hopi glassblower, is also a traditional katsina doll carver, silver worker, published poet, and lecturer. Ramson offers a variety of special workshops and programs about Hopi arts and culture for college, museum, and other groups visiting Hopi. Ramson's wife Jessica, a third mesa style basket maker, also provides meals for groups from two to twenty plus featuring traditional Hopi foods grown locally. For special programs or meals, please contact Ramson or Jessica well in advance of your planned visit.
