Featured in Susan Peterson's book Pottery by American Indian Women/ The Legacy of Generations, Williams has been making traditional Navajo pottery enhanced by distinctive weaving or basketry designs since 1980.
Born in the late 1950's, Lorraine was originally a weaver who also made sand paintings. After having married George Williams in 1977, she became exposed to her mother in law, Rose Williams, one of the best known Navajo potters. As Rose Williams did not draw, Lorraine chose to draw on the surfaces of her vessels to differentiate her work.
Rose Williams, Alice Cling and Lorraine Williams are credited with reshaping the look of Navajo pottery. Lorraine is described in the chapter titled "Avant-Garde" in the Peterson book.
