San Ildefonso Avanyu Serpent Long Neck Water Vase Pottery w Lid RUSSELL SANCHEZ:

San Ildefonso Avanyu Serpent Long Neck Water Vase Pottery w Lid RUSSELL SANCHEZ

This is an absolutely spectacular museum quality jar and at 13-1/2" tall, is one of the largest pieces that we have run into from Russell Sanchez. It is a traditional bud vase shape with an innovative use of clay and design. The shape of the vase has a low sharp shoulder and a long neck. This is a classic which was inspired by the work of his aunt, Rose Gonzales.

The jar was fired black and incised with the Avanyu water serpent around the shoulder. A single piece of bright blue turquoise was inset for the eye. The neck of the jar is fully polished and accented with a two-toned green incised mountain pattern. As is typical of Russell Sanchez's designs, there are also additional insets of turquoise heishi beads. The lid has a rectangular finial with a carved “key hole” design. The edges are polished and the top of the lid is incised, two-toned and inset with two pieces of turquoise. The gun metal firing of the jar can easily be seen in the area on the neck below the green band, where there is a “halo” of black. The heishi beads were all hand made by the Calabaza family from Santo Domingo Pueblo.

This gorgeous creation measures approx 5-1/2" wide x 13-1/2" tall, including lid. Signed under the lid.Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

This museum quality piece is absolutely magnificent and highly collectible! A great investment and sensational addition to any fine pottery collection!
