Williams, Sue Ann – Small Jar with Carved Mountain Rim

3"w x 3.25"h

$ 150.00

Sue Williams is a daughter of Rose Williams and a sister of Susie Crank and Alice Cling.  This jar is coil-built, sanded, and carved on the shoulder rim with an angular mountain pattern.  The piece 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!
