Begay, Jr., Harrison – Brown Jar with Two Heartline Bears
Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery. This jar has two heartline bears carved on each side. The bears are fully polished. They are separated by a star design on one side and a cloud pattern on the other. The neck and rim of the jar are fully polished. The jar is fired a brown coloration. The polished sections stand out more in contrast to the 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.
