Begay, Daniel – Jar with Turtle and Star Designs

Begay, Daniel – Jar with Turtle and Star Designs

5.5"w x 7"h
$ 1,000.00
Availability: In stock

This tall jar by Daniel Begay combines both polished and carved designs.  The jar has four sections of design.  One has a turtle with a water and feather pattern. The design is deeply cut into the clay and it is matte.  The opposite side has a feather pattern on the top, then a star and cloud design with a water design near the base.  Again, the carved section is matte.  Separating the two sections are two large panels which are fully polished.  The contrast of the polished and matte sections works well on this jar to highlight the two different techniques.  The matte is always difficult as it has to be sanded smooth or else there will be shadows created by any uneven surface.  The jar is fired a deep black in coloration.   Note how Daniel’s designs also combine both thin and thicker lines to enhance the imagery.  The style of carving has a beveled appearance to the angle of the cuts into the clay.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay.
