$ 3,500.00

Jeff Roller creates exceptional traditional pottery and there is remarkable attention to the crisp carved lines in his work as well as an evenness to his stone polished surfaces.  This is one of his iconic pieces with a sculpted animal.  This jar has an eagle head that is realistically sculpted into the clay.  Note the detail of the feathers and the tip of the beak!  The body of the jar extends backward and the wings are carved into the clay.  The piece was fired a deep black coloration.  It is a striking piece in person relative to the size, color, and complexity of the design. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jeff Roller”, 1990.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
