7"w x 8.75"h

$ 3,400.00

This is a large contemporary square jar by Daniel Begay.  The jar is coil-built, carved, stone-polished, and traditionally fired. The piece is entitled “Different Journeys.”  There are four bears that are carved on the jar, one on each side.  The bears are both polished and matte.  Note the highly polished surface on the two bears!  WOW!  They are surrounded by water and mountain step designs.  It is creative and fluid design.  Note how the designs extend over the top of the shoulder and around the edges!  Daniel is extraordinary in his ability to create pieces in this unique style.  It’s not just the imagery but the subtle flow of the polished and matte surfaces that are so creative in his work!   Daniel’s combination of both thin and thicker lines enhances the imagery.  His carving style has a beveled appearance to the angle of the cuts into the clay.  The jar is signed on the bottom, “Daniel”.
