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 visually appealing. The balance between the highly polished work and the black matte sections is beautiful. This is a new design for us to have from Daniel. A deep carved two toned (polished and matte) buffalo is shown on one panel. Its tail wraps around into the second panel. I think that work is especially creative. You can see a polished eternal spiral in the center of the buffalo’s body. Spirals, curves, and squared off geometrics 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 such continued growth on his part. It’s a pleasure to be involved with him as he continues to evolve as an artist.
