$ 900.00

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 water jar with a deeply carved avanyu as the design.  The avanyu is deeply carved into the clay and as the jar is turned there are water swirls and lightning designs.  The jar has a turned-out rim and even the inside of the neck is fully polished.  Note as well that the base of the jar is also fully polished.  It is 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.
