Luce Artist Biography
Jimmy Wilson is from the Naakaii dine'é (Mexican, or Wondering People) clan in Leupp, Arizona (Russell P. Hartman, Navajo Pottery: Traditions and Innovations, 1987). He learned to make pottery from the ceramist Faye Tso, who is also represented in this collection. He originally made ceremonial pottery, but then began drawing patterns on the clay and even modeled figures and animals onto the sides of his pots.
