Calvin Analla Laguna Fine Line Pottery
Calvin Anala is the brother of Yvonne Lucas, who is married to Hopi potter, Steve Lucas. He comes from the Paguate Village of the Laguna Pueblo. Like his sister and brother in law, Calvin's work is traditionally hand built with natural materials, then hand painted, and then fired outdoors in a sheep-dung firing pit.
Recently, Calvin has been experimenting with his clay bodies. He is mixing Hopi clay with his Laguna clay, and the effect is amazing. It looks marbled, and mottled - almost having a wooden effect. Calvin does a marvelous job of coiling old style, traditional forms and shapes.
This beautiful vase is so lightweight that feels feather like. The painting is very precisely and at the same time boldly executed and is placed perfectly on the top half of the pot. The pot is fairly large measuring 5 in tall by 8.25 in wide.
