Daniel T. Begay learned to make pottery from his father, Harrison Begay Jr., and his mother, Marie John. Daniel grew up in Santa Clara Pueblo and is Diné – inspiring him to combine the two cultures and traditions in his pottery. Each piece is coil-built, deeply carved, stone polished, and traditionally fired. Daniel has a Master’s in Business Administration. He is married to Melodie and has three daughters, Violet, Ayani, and Kwynn. He signs his work “Daniel B.” and adds the year the pot was made.
