Sylvia signs her pottery with a feather and the initial 'S'. "A lot of my designs are in part some of Mom's (Helen Naha), and I just mix them. There are about five designs of hers I use in different ways. Sometimes I used to cover up crooked designs and fit others to it."
"I'm starting to mix my designs with more traditional designs. A lot of people like the animal designs and a lot like the traditional, so I mix them. People like to see a lot of fine-line and others like simplicity. I like to bounce back and forth to make something eye pleasing. I use them to make something someone will like."
