$ 850.00

Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep-carved pottery.  This jar is coil-built and stone polished. There is a side view of a buffalo one one side.  Note how the buffalo is both matte and polished in sections. As the jar is turned there are wind, cloud, water, feather, and sun designs. There is a lot of carved design for the size of the jar!  The jar was fired a deep, glassy 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 22”
