Wilson Begay is ( in my humble opinion ) one of the best and least recognized Navajo artists around. His work is high quality in a traditional style and holds up well compared the Harry Morgan, Harry Begay and even Perry Shorty. He does mostly cast work with stamped designs. If I were a collector, I would be buying his work for the future, I think it is under priced compared to others. OK, off my soap box now...

This particular design with its distinct stamping has been attributed to Horace Iule by Toshio Sei, Dr. Gregory Schaff and several other experts. Horace Iule ( 1901-1978 ) was identified in John Adair's 1944 book as being one of the 2 or 3 best artists in Zuni. He learned from his father and worked with his wife Lupe who he married in 1933.

I think this wonderful gui is by the well known Maeda Masahiro, but I am not sure, he is known for inlaid pottery, but this style is a bit different. Has a great lean to it, like it has had a bit too much to drink. Perfect condition signed box about 2 1/2" diameter.

I am going to show my profuse ignorance listing the next few Japanese ceramic items -- I have not idea who made them, lost the records on them. This is a very nice ash glaze patterned tenmoku tea bowl. The artist used paper cut outs to give a pattern of dragon and phoenix on the inside. This type of pottery derives from the old Chinese Jian kilns of about 800 years ago. Has a silver rim, perfect condition about 5" diameter, artist signed with signed box.

Ralph Tawangyoma worked from the late 1920's into the mid-1960's. He was very innovative and his work is much appreciated now. This ring has a nice old turquoise that is hand cut -- not a perfect oval shape and the bezel is deep, both characteristics of older items. It is marked sterling and has the artist's hallmark. About 1 1/8" tall size 6 3/4, excellent worn vintage condition.
