Fabian de Vallenti Norberto

Fabian de Vallenti Norberto (1960-1994) is a Navajo potter who appears to have mastered the Santa Clara process of turning pots black and decorating them with sgraffito designs.

Like most Navajo potters, there's almost no information available about him. But it seems he produced most of his pottery while living in Albuquerque. He died at a young age, just as he was doing his best work.
