$ 550.00

Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery.  This jar has a heartline bear on one side and a buffalo on the other side.  The bear is fully polished.  The buffalo is both polished and matte and there is a carved and polished sun design. The rim of the jar is also fully polished.  The entire piece is highly polished and 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.
