Whitegeese, Daryl – Red and Tan Jar with Rising and Setting Sun Design

Whitegeese, Daryl – Red and Tan Jar with Rising and Setting Sun Design

8.75"w x 5.5"h
$ 3,400.00
Availability: Out of stock

This is one of the first red and tan jar we have had by Daryl Whitegeese.  He is known for his use of traditional Santa Clara shapes and designs.  This jar is a wide shape and fully polished a deep red on the top and the bottom.  The central area is carved with a mesa design and rising and setting sun designs. The central area is polished tan, which is always difficult to create. The tan areas are where water (not clay slip) is applied to the surface of the piece and then stone polished.  Push to hard and it is streaky but not hard enough and it won’t have a shine.  This jar has an amazing coloration for both the red and tan areas. There is the traditional cream colored clay which he has used in the recessed areas which have been carved out.  Typically for his work, the edges are very sharp and create a strong contrast to the matte slipped background.  Daryl has won numerous awards for his pottery including “Best of Pottery” at the 2015 and 2019 Heard Indian Markets.   The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay.
