Whitegeese, Daryl – Red Water Jar with Rain and Mountain Designs
Daryl Whitegeese is known for his use of classic Santa Clara forms and his amazing polished surfaces. This jar is a classic water jar with a low shoulder and an elongated neck. The jar is very deeply carved around the center of the piece. The imagery are rain, cloud, and mountain patterns. The area which has been carved away and is recessed into the clay is slipped with a white clay slip. The top and bottom of the jar are fully polished. The jar is very deeply carved and the edges almost feel sharp to the touch! The jar is polished a deep red and has been traditionally fired. 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”.
