It is always wonderful to have work by our friend, Dora Tse Pe return to the gallery. Dora claims “My first experience with my mother’s clay was when I was about six years old. She taught me the sacredness of clay. All have spiritual significance. I treat my clay with much respect.” She explained that every step of making pottery is done only after prayer and thanksgiving for our gifts of clay, water, fire, and artistic talents.

This is a rather simple, but elegant hand coiled jar. Black and sienna, with a single turquoise stone, it is beautifully polished and fired outdoors. When Dora was still making pottery, she was known for her fantastic polishing skills. This jar shows off exactly that. The piece was made in the early 2000s. It is in outstanding condition.
