Whitegeese, Daryl – Carved Jar with Avanyu
Daryl Whitegeese is known for his deep carved pottery. This jar has a low shoulder and a slightly turned out rim. The body of the piece is carved with a classic Avanyu (water serpent) design. The body of the avanyu encircles the jar and it has cloud and rain designs. The carving on Daryl’s pottery is deep and with a very sharp edge. The jar is stone polished to a high shine and traditionally fired. The background has a traditional cream-colored clay which is applied before it is fired. The last photo is the actual clay and how it looks in the pottery. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay.
