$ 3,200.00

This is a spectacular corrugated jar by Jared Tso.  He is a grandson of potter Faye Tso and his pottery is exceptionally refined in technique and traditional in style.  Each piece is coil-built from traditional native Navajo clay and traditionally fired.  This jar is “corrugated”, meaning it has the coils left exposed on the outside.  Jared said he wanted to create a piece that appeared to look like one single coil wrapped around to the rim.  Each thin coil was then incised with design.  The interior is equally exciting, as it is smooth and fully polished in Jared’s swirling style.  The jar was reduced-fired to turn it a silvery black.  Jared won the prestigious “Tony Da Award for Creativity” (2022 SFIM) for one of his corrugated jars!  It is exciting to see an artist find inspiration in ancient corrugated pottery and then, using the same clays, create something so dynamic.  Vessels such as this find strength in their traditional techniques yet are refined in a modern manner.  The jar is signed on the inside, “Jared Tso”.
