Lucy Leuppe McKelvey – Navajo
Lucy Leuppe McKelvey is a Native American Indian from the Navajo Reservation. She is known as an innovator in the native american art world.The whole philosophy of Navajo culture is one of beauty and harmony. That is what I am doing with my pots; this is what my girls are doing. We are creating Navajo beauty from Navajo materials. Everything you see on a pot has come from Mother Earth, from the clay to the paint – everything. The pots don’t look like traditional Navajo pots, but the uses for those are not needed as much today.
