Daryl Whitegeese is known for his use of classic Santa Clara forms and his amazing polished surfaces.  This jar is a classic shape with a low round body and a slightly turned out neck.  The jar is fully carved with a rainbow pattern with rain extending downward and two corn plants in each section.  The jar is very deeply carved and the edges almost feel sharp to the touch! The jar is very highly polished and fired a glossy black.  Note as well the rim of the jar, which almost seems to have a sharp edge, which is difficult to achieve with stone polishing the surface.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay.

Daryl Whitegeese polishing a piece of his pottery (2013)

Daryl Whitegeese is the son of noted potter LuAnn Tafoya, and the grandson of Santa Clara pottery family matriarch Margaret Tafoya. Daryl has committed himself to creating classic Santa Clara style pottery.  You can see the expert polish and shape that his mother and grandmother handed down to him.  He creates traditional pottery where each vessel is coil built, sanded shaped and carved, then stone polished and native fired. He has built his reputation on reviving historic shapes and designs in his pottery along with a distinctive style of carving and highly polished surfaces. He has won numerous awards for his pottery over the past several years at Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard Indian Market. At Santa Fe Indian Market he was awarded the "Utilitarian Pottery" special award. In 2014 Daryl won "Best of Pottery" at the Heard Indian Market.
