Roller, Toni -15″ Tall Jar with Avanyu and Cloud Designs
Toni Roller is known for her classic shapes and exquisite stone polished pottery. A daughter of Margaret Tafoya, Toni has developed her own distinctive style yet adhering to the traditional methods and techniques of her mother. This may be one of the tallest pieces of her potter we have seen! The jar is 15″ tall and carved with two bands of design. There is a central band with a carved avanyu. Above the avanyu is a carved band with cloud, bird and lightning designs. It is a very intricately designed piece. As well, the entire surface is fully polished! It is traditionally fired a deep black. The jar is from 2006 and signed on the bottom, “Toni Roller”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. Definitely a significant piece by one of Margaret Tafoya’s daughters.
