Lidded Jar

  • Mark Shapiro, Lidded Jar, 2000, wood fired stoneware, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mary Nyburg's Blue Heron Gallery and Elmerina and Paul Parkman, 2000.93A-B

Luce Center Label

Mark Shapiro feels that a successful pot is one that fits the needs of its user and is still visually appealing. He lets the clay dry partially before carving, then decorates according to his whim. The body of this jar has four ribs that circle the pot and create variations in the glaze.
