$ 1,800.00

Jordan Roller uses traditional techniques to create his modernistic vessels in clay. This jar is coil-built, carved, stone polished, and traditionally fired black. The shape is striking with the double shoulder and slight neck.  The neck and base are fully polished to a high shine.  Around the shoulder, the jar is carved with a striking combination of designs and techniques.  There is an eagle tail and eagle feather pattern which then extends into a lighting and mountain design.  The larger feather patterns are carved with more open space and then there is a spiraling cloud design.  The contrasting thin carved areas and wide carved spaces emphasize the designs and the form. The double shoulder is perfect for how the light hits the jar and shows the designs.  It is signed, “Jordan Roller”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
