Tso, Jared – Jar with Incised Rim
We are very pleased to introduce the clay work of Jared Tso and be one of the first galleries to represent his pottery. 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, traditionally fired and covered in pinon pitch after the firing. This is a tall jar which has a raised design on the exterior rim. The raised band is incised with a linear design. The dynamic part of this jar is the polishing and the coloration. The jar is polished in a swirl from the neck to the base. The interior is also fully polished. The jar is a tan coloration with variations of black from the firing. Vessels such as this find strength in their traditional techniques yet are refined in a modernistic manner. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jared Tso”.
