Youngblood, Nancy – “Micro Mini” “S” Swirl Water 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 water jar with eight ribs in her classic “S” Swirl. There is a neck to the jar and she even polished on the inside of the neck! Note for the size the depth of the carving of the ribs! 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.
