Many of the Hermannsburg potters are descendants of Albert Namatjira and influenced by his use of modern style and deep connection to the land. Hermannsburg potters continue this tradition in their pots, decorated with scenes from the Western MacDonnell Ranges and telling stories in clay with their own unique artistic twist.
