This new jar by Daniel represents everything that I like about his work. It is hand coiled and traditionally fired outdoors. The “squared” off shape of the jar is incredibly visually appealing. The balance between the highly polished work and the black matte sections is beautiful. A deep carved turtle is shown on one panel. I really like how it is on its side with its head facing upwards. Spirals and stair step designs are carefully placed around the three other panels. The square open neck is polished to a high sheen on the lip as well as the neck. Daniel continues to challenge himself with both shape and form and designs. This piece shows it all.

5” high by 6” x 6” (straight edges) 7 1/2” (at its widest point)
