Youngblood, Nancy – “Micro Mini” 8 Rib Tall Jar
This miniature is part of a series created by Nancy Youngblood of her “micro-minis”. They are miniature versions of her larger vessels. Each piece is coil built, carved, stone polished, and traditionally fired. This is a “taller” jar with eight straight ribs carved into the clay. The entire piece, including the neck, is fully polished and fired a deep black. It is remarkable how she can do this on such a small surface! The piece signed on the bottom in the clay “Nancy Y.”. It is from 2021.
