Early Jon Almeda vase, some flaws, sold as is



This is a very early vase by ceramic artisan Jon Almeda.  It is not as well executed as his current work - it is symmetrical and the colour is lovely but the lip is uneven.  I don't think that it is chipped as the glaze is continuous.  There is also some overall crazing to the glaze.  The signature is Jon's earlier version as well.

5/8 inch (1.6 cm) in diameter, 1 1/16 inches (2.7 cm) tall.
