Sue Williams is a daughter of Rose Williams and a sister of Susie Crank and Alice Cling. This bowl is coil-built, sanded, and carved on the shoulder with a rainbow design. The bowl was traditionally fired to create blushes on the surface. After the firing, the entire surface was covered in pinon pitch. This was a traditional method historically to make the pottery waterproof. Today, potters continue this process as a testament to the past. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Sue”. It is a new piece from Sue Williams who has begun making more pottery again!
