Lorraine Yazzie was the daughter-in-law of Navajo pottery matriarch Rose Williams. Alice Cling and Sue Williams were her sisters-in-law. That all changed when Lorraine divorced her husband. Now she goes by her maiden name, "Lorraine Yazzie," but until that gets out into the general population she sometimes refers to herself as "Lorraine Williams-Yazzie."
Lorraine likes to make tall jars and decorate them with bands of Navajo carpet designs. Then, after she fires her pots, she gives them a coating of pinon pine pitch.
