San Ildefonso Avanyu Serpent Black & Sienna Pottery Jar w Lid by RUSSELL SANCHEZ

Offered here is a magnificent museum qualitytwo-toneAvanyu Serpent pottery jar with lid by famous San Ildefonso potter Russell Sanchez.Russell Sanchez is world renown for his ability to take traditional San Ildefonso forms and designs and transform them with a more modern appearance.

This jar was fired to nearly a gunmetal metallic appearance. After the firing, Russell “two toned” the jar to give the top half a sienna coloration. This is achieved by burning off the black to return the clay to its natural color. The bottom of the jar remains gunmetal in appearance. The jar was then etched with an Avanyu water serpent encircling the shoulder. Three bands of turquoise heishi beads were inset around the shoulder and a single black jet gemstone inset for the eye. The lid is gunmetal in appearance as well, two-toned on the finial and then inset with a piece of turquoise on each side. It is an absolute elegant balance of form, design and color!

This gorgeous creation measures approx 4-1/2" wide x 6" tall, including lid. Signed on the bottom of the clay.Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

This is truly a classic and collectible piece. It is absolutely magnificent! Great investment and sensational addition to any fine pottery collection!

*Russell's work is widely accepted by serious collectors of some of the finest Native American pottery made today. He often introduces different materials into the clay while staying within the traditional construction and firing techniques of pueblo pottery. Russell has won numerous awards and honors in competitive shows every year since 1978. He has works in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institute, the Millicent Rogers Museum, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (Santa Fe) and the Museum of Natural History (Los Angeles).Russell has won numerous awards for his pottery and in 2017 was awarded the prestigious New Mexico Governor’s Award for the Arts.*
