Williams, Sue Ann – Bowl with Rain Design Rim
5"w x 3.75"h
Sue Williams is a daughter of Rose Williams and a sister of Susie Crank and Alice Cling. This bowl is coil-built, sanded, and stone-polished. The bowl has a round shoulder. The rim of the bowl has a raised “necklace” on the jar with incised rain patterns. 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!
