Roller, Cliff – Jar with Square Neck (2002)
Cliff Roller is a son of noted potter Toni Roller. Each piece is coil built and stone polished. This jar has a round body and an elongated square neck. The designs are carved into the negative space of the jar. Around the neck are a tablita and wind pattern. Around the sides are rain and kiva bowl patterns. The jar is deeply carved and highly polished. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Cliff Roller”. This bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. While these days Cliff makes very little pottery, his work remains a statement to his skill as a potter!
