5"w x 5.5"h

$ 975.00

Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery.  This jar has a carved turtle on one side and a butterfly on the other side.  They are separated by stars and waterfall designs. The rim of the jar is fully polished and the jar is fired a deep black.  The polished sections 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 2020”.
