Heard @ the Heard 2011: Pottery Innovator Harrison Begay, Jr.
Award-winning Diné (Navajo) potter Harrison Begay, Jr. does amazing work. His skill lies in creating pots with interesting shapes that are deeply incised and polished. In addition to being a master polisher, Begay is highly skilled at ensuring that the cuts in his work are consistent throughout the piece. For those who don’t know about Pueblo pottery, Santa Clara pots are hand-coiled, incised with the designs, and then coated with a red clay slip (liquid clay). Just before the slip dries…
Iris Nampeyo (ca. 1860–1942) was a Hopi-Tewa potter who lived on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona. She was better known by her Tewa name, Num-pa-yu, meaning "Snake that does not bite." She developed her own style based on traditional designs. Her work is in the Smithsonian Institution and is collected worldwide. In 1904 and 1907, she produced and sold pottery at the Grand Canyon lodge. She and her husband traveled to Chicago in 1898 and 1910 to display her work.

Denise Chavarria is a daughter of Stella Chavarria and granddaughter of Teresita Naranjo. It is obvious, by examining her work that she follows in the footsteps of her famous grandmother and mother. Her vessel shapes are very similar to those of Teresita and her carving details follow those of her mother.
