Begay, Jr., Harrison – Butterfly and Turtle Jar
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”.
