Calvin Analla Jr. is from
the Paguate Village of the Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico and is
a brother to Yvonne Analla Lucas, and brother-in-law to the famed
Hopi potter Steve Lucas. He has learned the pottery making art
and has created a style unique to his Laguna heritage.
Following the example of his
sister and brother in law, Calvin's work is hand coiled with
natural clay, hand painted, and then fired traditionally in a
sheep dung firing pit.
Calvin has been experimenting
with two different types of clay lately. He mixes Hopi clay with
Laguna clay giving his creations a unique marbled look.
His work can be found in some
of the finest galleries in the Southwest. We are pleased to feature
new work by this talented artist.
