Stunning Black Traditional Tewa Water Jar Form with Double Belly by Russell Sanchez
So much subtle beauty in this gorgeous jar with fluted rim by master potter Russell Sanchez of San Ildefonso pueblo. The form is traditional including the double rainbow band at the mid-body (called double belly at San Ildefonso). The base is a very narrow pedestal making this jar’s perfect balance an artistic achievement in and of itself. Russell risked breaking the jar when he chose to polish the inner neck all the way down to the first Heishe band. The fluted rim is perfectly formed and polished. Magnificent and stately; a masterpiece of elegant simplicity.
Size: 7.75” tall by 5.5” wide
Provenance: Purchase directly from Russell
