This new jar by Daniel is very appealing. Hand coiled, traditionally fired outdoors, deeply carved and magnificently polished, it displays all the elements of classically beautiful black ware. Daniel calls the main design element, “the big bear.” He’s rather charming, with a large, polished spiral in his center. The rest of the jar uses stylized geometrics to fill the body of the jar. The rim has a polished border, matching with the same polished border on the bottom of the jar. The symmetry is pleasing and adds to the gracefulness of the finished jar. It’s a pleasure to watch Daniel continue to strive for great refinement in his work.
