$ 375.00

Myra Tso (1961-2004) was a daughter of Faye Tso and an aunt of Jared Tso.  She learned to make pottery from her mother and also while studying at the University of Northern Arizona. There are some exceptional pieces of her work at the Smithsonian Museums (click here to see).  This is a classic Navajo water jar. There are incised Corn and Yei Figures around the neck of the piece. The neck of the jar has a cloud pattern in relief.  It is a classic style of design.  The jar was traditionally fired and is covered at the end with pinon pitch.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Myrna Tso”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  Definitely a great piece of Navajo pottery history!
