Luce Artist Biography

Rose Williams heads the most famous family of Navajo potters. She taught many of her descendants to work with clay, including three daughters, Alice Cling, Susie Williams, and Sue Ann Williams, and daughter-in-law Lorraine Williams (Russell P. Hartman, Navajo Pottery: Traditions and Innovations, 1987). She makes traditional Navajo jars, vases, and pipes for both functional and ceremonial purposes.
