Calvin Analla, 2016

Calvin Alalla

Calvin Analla is the brother of noted potter Yvonne Lucas. He creates pottery in a classic Laguna style with variations on design and clay colors. Calvin is from the village of Paguate, just north of Laguna. He started creating pottery in 1990 while observing his paternal grandmother, Evelyn Cheromiah, and his aunt, Lee Ann Cheromiah. Born in 1960, Calvin Analla Jr. uses traditional Pueblo pottery methods of collecting his clay near the Pueblo, hand coiling and scrap shaping each pot, but often uses a variation o clay color in is construction, giving an added dimension of marbled appearance.  He attributes this process to needing some additional clay, when his brother-in-law Steve Lucas offered him so lighter Hopi clay.  He modeled the two together and created the marbled clay construction.   After applying fine line and Pueblo designs to his pottery, Calvin also uses the traditional methods of open firing his work.

Analla, Calvin – Large Water Jar with Plant Designs

Calvin Analla learned to  make pottery from his sister, Yvonne Lucas and her husband, Steve Lucas.  This large water jar is thin walled and made with the traditional red clay from Laguna Pueblo. The jar is painted with bee-weed, into which he has mixed some mica.  The mica makes reflections in the clay.  Calvin is known for his very delicately painted designs.  This jar has cloud designs above the shoulder and plant designs below.  The thin lines painted with the bee-weed show create a striking contrast with the red clay.  It is signed on the bottom.
