6 1/2” high by 4 1/4” wide

Shape and form – that is what we can see in this new Tewa shaped water jar from Russell. Notice how narrow the bottom is, and how it is so in line with the opening of the jar. Russell creates a sculpted lid that fits tight down into the jar; it doesn’t just rest on the top. The three strands of olive shell and turquoise Heishi around the neck gives this form such visual appeal. The lip is scalloped with such a warm terra cotta tone. The firing is gun metal and magnificent. For those people that admire simplicity at its best – this is it.
