5.5"w x 4.5"h

$ 250.00

Sue Williams is a daughter of Rose Williams and a sister of Susie Crank and Alice Cling.  This jar is coil-built, sanded and stone polished.  The jar has a carved rim with a lightning shape.  The jar was traditionally fired to create blushes on the surface.  After the firing, the entire surface was covered in pinon pitch.  This was a traditional method historically to make the pottery waterproof. Today, potters continue this process as a testament to the past. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Sue”.  It is a new piece from Sue Williams who has begun making more pottery again!
