Superb and Classic Black Swirl Jar with 32 Ribs by Nancy Youngblood, 2005


This is one of Nancy Youngblood's true classics, dating to 2005. Each swirling rib is beautifully carved, perfectly in fact. Each side of each rib is polished so the amount of exacting work is far more than is apparent at first glance. Each of the 32 ribs must be polished and to Nancy's astonishing standard. The result is a magnificent extension of the pottery craft; a jar that appears to be liquid, in motion. Few of these were ever made and fewer yet come back on the market. This is a rare opportunity.
