Taos Micaceous Long Neck Melon Vase by Angie Yazzie

I’ve known this traditional award-winning Taos potter and her stunning work for many years, but this contemporary vase is Angie Yazzie at her best.  Each subtly-rounded rib appears carved, but is actually extruded out from the inside, rib by rib.  The surface has many subtle fire clouds.  The piece is wood fired and then smothered at the end by placing an empty trash can over the blazing fire.  The result is sheer elegance, thin and miraculously light.  A gem!
