Ebelacker, Jason – Bowl with Carved Cloud and Lightning Designs
This is a deeply carved bowl by Jason Ebelacker. The shape is round and the entire surface is carved. It is a flowing design of cloud and lightning patterns. The style of the bowl and design is certainly reminiscent of his great-grandmother, Margaret Tafoya. The entire piece is polished to a high shine. The rim of the bowl is also polished onto the inside! The bowl was traditionally fired to a deep black. Jason is a son of noted potter Richard Ebelacker, a grandson of Virginia Ebelacker and great-grandson of Margaret Tafoya. He has won numerous awards for his pottery and continues to be one of the younger potters to watch. It’s great to see the continuing evolution of his work in clay.
