San Ildefonso 3-Color Long-Necked Vase with Asymmetrical Mid-body by Russell Sanchez
Playful, experimental and beautiful new form for Russell. The Avanyu (water serpent) is delicate and subtle. The upper neck features green and red banding and 3 strands of fine Calabaza heishe. The stone polish is exquisite as usual. The effect is very modern, just a little edgy and rewards us for expanding our usual expectation of form. To me, this type of experimentation is Russell at his most exciting.
