7"w x 10"h

$ 4,000.00

This is a large contemporary jar by Daniel Begay.  The jar is coil-built, carved, stone-polished, and traditionally fired. It is carved with a large eagle that has its wings spread. The eagle on the jar takes up THREE of the four sides!  It is stunning in style and amazing how Daniel is able to carve across the sharp edge of the vessel.  The fourth side has a waterfall design.  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”.
