No matter what size jars Russell creates, they are always so perfectly scaled to size. This all black small water jar is an example of that skill. Notice the indented areas on the lip of the jar, flowing into the piece. He repeats those impressed areas on the top quadrant of the jar. Two strands of black hematite heishi act as a border for the panel with a whole row of hematite stones. This can be referred to as a black gourd waterfall jar. It is stunning.
