Harrison Begay, Jr. has won numerous awards over the years for his deep-carved pottery.  This jar is coil-built and stone polished. The entire jar is fully carved with a variety of classic designs.  The top band has feather and circular wind patterns.  Below are wind, cloud, and sun designs.  The jar is not just deeply carved, but highly polished.  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”
