Lorraine Williams is one of the most recognized and collectible Navajo artists, and is listed and represented in major collections and registries across the United States and around the world. She is featured in Susan Peterson's book Pottery by American Women the Legacy of Generations. Her work has toured leading museums across the United States showcasing Native American art. She was an invited artist to the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.Where she even gave demonstrations on making Navajo pottery. Lorraine's work is considered very important and highly collectible! Born Lorraine Yazzie in 1955 on the Navajo Nation, and grew up near Kayenta Teec Nos Pas. Her mother was a traditional herbalist and her father was a respected Navajo medicine man. She was not only influenced by Rose Williams (considered to be one of the greatest Navajo Potters), but she married Rose's son, George. You can see the intimate training and effect that being next to Rose had on Lorraine in all of her artwork.
In fact, she still fires all of her pots outside and upside down for 3 hours and keeps her fire hot by using an abundance of wood. National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian Institute. Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff.
