Tso, Jr., Damon – Tall Jar with Rope Design Rim

6"w x 7"h

$ 500.00

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 is a classic style Navajo shape.  It has a low shoulder and an elongated neck.  Around the neck is a raised “rope” design that is incised. Below the shoulder, there is texture to the surface.  Damon said he achieved the texture by using a corn cob.  It is an interesting variation in texture and rim design on a classic drum jar form.  The jar was traditionally fired and then covered with pinon-pitch after the firing.   It is signed, “Damon Tso, Jr.” on the bottom.
