On any given day, Chase will be walking the river banks of the White, Washita, and Red rivers of Oklahoma always on the hunt for local clay, harvesting and processing it to create exquisitely crafted pottery inspired by ancient forms. Five hundred years ago, his Caddo ancestors produced some of the most striking pottery in prehistoric North America. All of these pieces were created by the coiling technique and many were engraved with organic designs derived from Caddo myth and legend.
Chase says that his “contemporary Caddo pottery is born of inspiration from my Native tribe’s ancient and unique heritage. It is their legacy that I wish to keep alive by interpreting our ancient designs and symbols in a new and modern way using the methods and materials of our time.”
