$ 2,100.00

This is a classic jar by Jeff Roller.  Jeff is a son of Toni Roller and a grandson of Margaret Tafoya.  He continues a family legacy of extraordinary traditional pottery.  This jar is coil built, stone polished and traditionally fired black. It is a wide shape and carved on the shoulder.  The design is a mesa pattern (the steps) with clouds and wind blowing over them.  It is a very fluid design. Note the depth of the carving and its consistency throughout the piece. The piece is beautifully polished and the polishing marks are almost imperceptible!  It is fired a deep black.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jeff Roller” and dated 2019.
