Gonzales, Tse-Pe – Black and Sienna Jar with Carved Avanyu (1997)

4.5"w x 5"h

$ 800.00

Tse-Pe Gonzales was a son of noted potter Rose Gonzales.  This jar is from 1997.  The jar is coil-built and has a carved avanyu.  It is not often that we see Tse-Pe’s pottery with carved designs as opposed to etched ones. The jar is slipped with mica and the rim and avanyu are two-toned sienna after the peice was fired black.  There is a single inset turquoise hei-shi bead for the eye of the avanyu.  The jar is signed on the bottom with Tse-Pe’s hallmark, “TP”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
