Sanchez, Russell – Black & Green Asymmetric Jar
This asymmetric jar Russell Sanchez is from around 2001. It is one of his classic asymmetric forms with a sharp edge and an indented side. The entire piece is fully polished black. The top half has been “two-toned” black and green. There is a band of silver leaf which extends around the jar. It is surrounded by two bands of shell and turquoise hei-shi beads. The bottom half of the bowl has a series of stylized San Ildefonso flower and leaf designs. This was a period when Russell was experimenting with these types of designs and giving them a more contemporary flare. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
