“Kate Davis learned pottery making as a child from Selena Williams, her grandmother.  Kate’s adherence to the time-honored pottery-making techniques and practices of the Navajo makes her one of today’s most traditional potters, and many of her vessels are purchased by Navajos for ceremonial use.  However, she and daughter Mary Lou also are skilled at producing less traditional forms, and Mary Lou’s recent experiments with smudged blackware attest to a willingness to depart from conventions.  Both Kate and her daughter have adapted some old styles of decoration, such as an unobliterated surface treatment produced by corncob scraping and overall thumbnail indentations, to their contemporary forms.” Plateau, 1987
