Tso, Jr., Damon – “Dragonflies over the Water” Jar
Damon Tso, Jr., is a self-taught potter. He began making pottery in 2003 and each piece is coil-built and made from clay that he sources from near his home in Buffalo Springs, New Mexico. This jar has a round shoulder and a sloping neck. There are three rows of ribs carved into the clay representing a river. On top are four dragonflies in relief. The jar was traditionally fired and then covered with pinon-pitch after the firing. The jar is VERY thin-walled and a striking coloration from the firing. It is signed, “Damon Tso, Jr.” on the bottom.
