Begay, Jr., Harrison – Bowl with Double Heartline Bear and Waterfall
Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery. This bowl is deeply carved and fully polished. There are two heartline bears on one side. One is fully polished and the other is matte. As the bowl is turned there are cloud and a waterfall design. Then sections with a wave and sun design. The rim of the bowl is fully polished and the jar is fired a deep black. The polished sections are selected by Harrison so that they stand out more in contrast to the black matte areas. Note as well the style of carving, which has a beveled appearance to the angle of the cuts into the clay. This is a very distinctive style of carving for his pottery. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Harrison 2021”.
