Harrison Begay Jr is one of the most innovative and talented contemporary Native American potters. His works are represented in many important collections and he continues to innovate within the boundaries of Native American pottery techniques. Harrison Begay Jr is Navajo, as is reflected in the beautifully burnished surface of this pot, and he learned to make pottery from his mother-in-law at Santa Clara. In the process, he learned techniques and designs of the Native American potters in Santa Clara Pueblo.

This pot combines all these influences in a majestic way, with the carving exquisite, the different tones of polished and unpolished surfaces and the wonderful designs. This pot is exquisite and deserves to be in an important collection of Native American pottery.
