Begay, Jr., Harrison – Old Style Dragonfly Jar
This is a classic jar by Harrison Begay, Jr.. He has won numerous awards over the years for his deep carved pottery. This jar has old style dragonflies carved into the clay. They are surrounded by cloud, wind and water designs. The dragonflies are polished while the other designs are both matte and polished. The variation in surfaces creates a more striking appearance. Harrison has a distinctive style of carving, which has a beveled appearance to the angle of the cuts into the clay. Note as well the polishing on this jar, which has a glassy appearance! The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Harrison ’19”.
