Navajo Bear Claw Dream Catcher Art Pottery by Fernandez Benally

Noted Navajo Potter Fernandez Benally made this wonderful pottery piece.

Made of natural clay from the Four Corners region of the Navajo Reservation, it is globe shaped, with openings on four sides representing the four directions and a large opening on the top covered with a dream catcher.

The bear claw design represents strength and protection. Benally applies tree sap from the pinon or ponderosa pine immediately after firing to achieve the glistening finish. He learned his pottery skills from his mother, Julie Benally, also a noted potter

It measures 6.5" high and 6.5" in diameter at its widest. It is signed and dated 2004 on the bottom with accompanying etched feathers.

We have tried to show the wonderful piece with photographs from every angle, and the last photo shows the fetish bear etching on the inside of the pot..
