6.5"w x 9"h

$ 2,500.00

This is a thin-walled tall jar by Jared Tso.  He is one of the rising stars of Native 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 from traditional native Navajo clay and traditionally fired.  This jar is one in a new series with multiple sharp shoulders.  Technically, they are interesting pieces as at each edge, to continue to build up, they round inward and then back out to the next shoulder!  This jar has three sharp shoulders.  The jar is slipped half white and half is slipped red.  The piece was stone polished at a swirl on each of the levels of the jar!  The piece was traditionally fired and the blushes are exceptional, ranging from black to red to brown.  After the firing, it was covered in pinon pitch.  It is exciting to see an artist find inspiration in the historic work, and, using the same clays, refine them in a modernistic manner.  The jar is signed, “Jared Tso”.
