Logan was born on 7/1/83 and, guided by brother Jake, has been making pottery for only one month. Logan, however, is a katchina carver and this explains the fine painting and imaginative design of the corn and katchina image. (A photograph of a Pahlik Mana Katchina by Logan is on file.) Logan was particularly proud of his use of white kaolin clay in the design of the tile, “A very difficult color to work with.”
