Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery.  This jar is from 1999.  It is a classic shape with a high shoulder and short neck. The jar deeply carved and there is an amazing amount of design on the surface.  Around the top of the shoulder, there is a star pattern (polished) with matte carved rain designs.  Around the side of the jar, there is a bear and Yei figure along with cloud, rain, hand and other designs.  They are each deeply polished and carved. An unusual addition to the design is the incised imagery.  Take a closer look at the matte areas of the jar and they are fully designed with incised lines to create cloud, swirls, star and other designs!  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.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
