I got this a few years ago, it was added with another item I bought. It was only recently when moving things around that I took a second look at this.
Pottery is not my area of expertise at all, so when I saw the initials of "C.B" on the bottom when I first got it I gave it no thought at all. But, while I had it out again, I looked a little closer and saw a second signature. It was signed "Carlos Begay".
This is a simple piece of pottery, but I like that. It is only 3 1/2 inches high and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. It has a nice design around the top. It was fired in a pit, you can see one side is darker than the other. And pitch was poured on the inside so it could be used as a vessel to hold liquid.
While I can't be sure that this was done by THE Carlos Begay, it is still a nice piece. Small and simple and nicely made. Enjoy the pics :)
