Seed Jar

Close up of Seed Jar

Round with a slight taper toward the base and a tiny opening at the top, this clay seed jar features a repeating pattern of abstracted flower shapes and a lightning bolt design. On the white surface the dark brown, delicately drawn designs expand and contract accordant with the form of the vessel.
