Begay, Jr., Harrison – Jar with Raven
Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery. This taller jar is fully designed with ravens. This is one of the first times we have seen him use ravens as the imagery on his pottery. One is in flight and the other two are standing. They are surrounded by lightning and cloud designs. The jar 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.
