Begay, Jr., Harrison – Jar with Heartline Bear and Flower Designs
Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery. This jar has a heartline bear on one side. As the jar is turned there are waves and a flower. The jar is highly polished and fired to a glassy appearance. 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”.
