Rainy Naha creates beautifully coiled pottery which is thin walled and traditionally fired. The white color is a white clay slip which is polished onto the surface of the clay.  Her designs are all painted using natural clay slips for the various colors, or bee-weed for the black.  On the seedpot below is  her classic solstice pattern.  In the sections near the opening are various phases of the moon.  In the smaller panels below the moons are cloud, rain and traditional Hopi designs
