Alice Cling learned to form and fire clay from her mother, the legendary Rose Williams, the matriarch of Navajo pottery. Alice helped usher in a new era of Southwestern pottery with her distinctive finishes, which she achieves by using a special brown clay slip that she polishes with a smooth stone and wax paper to achieve a smooth finish. This set of two small pots are fascinating because of their elegant black fire clouds and the unusual square-mouth vase design.

The Navajo have made pottery since their arrival; possibly they brought pottery with them during their southern migration. They made a plain and decorated pottery. The plain being considered the older style? More about this legend
