This new jar by Russell is so beautiful in every way. The shape is terrific. Notice how the narrow bottom balances with the same size opening on the top. The waterfall gourd impressed lip is remarkable. So symmetrical and so hard to polish! There are five strands of embedded heishi on the jar as well as his trademark incised dots. A beautiful avanyu (water serpent) flows around the entire jar. Russell has used high grade Kingman turquoise for the eye. The little touches of turquoise heishi really sets off the beautiful blue coloring of the eye. This particular heishi was made by Joe and Mary Calabaza, who sadly, have passed away. This new piece is absolutely stunning.
