$ 475.00

Damon Tso, Jr., is a self-taught potter.  He began making pottery in 2003 and each piece is hand-built and made from native clay that he sources from near his home in Buffalo Springs, New Mexico.  This open bowl is a classic Navajo shape.  It has sloping sides and is polished on the inside and outside.  Around the outer rim is a raised “rope” design that is incised.  The bowl was traditionally fired and then covered with pinon-pitch after the firing.   It is signed, “Damon Tso, Jr.” on the bottom.  There is a second-place ribbon from the 2023 Gallup Ceremonials.
