Tse-Pe, Dora – Black and Sienna Long Neck Jar (1982)
This jar by Dora Tse-Pe is from 1982. It is a classic shape which was often used by her mother-in-law, Rose Gonzales. The sharp shoulder and long neck create a delicate form. Dora was renown not just for the shapes of her pottery, but especially her highly polished surfaces. The jar is fired black and the neck is two-tone making the piece “black and sienna”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Dora Tse-Pe ’82”.
