Loretta Laban Hopi Pottery
Hopi hand-coiled polychrome pottery by Loretta Laban. This particular pottery has gone through a process of gathering and preparing the clay, then coiling the pot, smoothing, drying, sanding, going through it's first polishing. The painting is then started usually with natural pigments, the pot then goes through a second polishing then the final process of firing. This is a one of a kind item.
