Nancy Chilly

Nancy Chilly and husband, Jackson Yazzie, work together making traditional Navajo pottery. Relative newcomers, they have been making traditional pottery full-time for only the past two years. However, with high-quality and distinctive pots, it won’t be long before they will be well known.
They live on the Utah portion of the Navajo reservation, quite some distance from the Cow Springs area in Arizona where most Navajo potters live, close to the clay beds of that moister area. Nevertheless, that’s where they go to get their clay, as do most Navajo potters. Nancy signs her work, “NAC”
