Hopi-Navajo Green Seed Jar by Nathan Begaye

Steve Elmore Indian Art

Hopi-Navajo master potter Nathan Begaye (1958-2010) made this green seed jar in 1991. The bottom of the jar is dated 2-22-91, along with the artist’s signature. The jar exemplifies Nathan's skill as a potter, from its symmetrical hand-coiled molding to the original abstract design. This piece is an excellent example of Nathan’s innovation as a potter, combining traditional Hopi and Navajo themes with abstract expressionism. The jar measures 4 ½” height and 8 ½” diameter, and is in excellent condition with one hairline firing crack repair.
