This sculpted glass quirt was made while I was a Artist in Residence at the incredible Pilchuck Glass School. I have been very honored to have attended Pilchuck in several manifestations, from a Artist in Residence, a student, and a Fellowship Recipient, but the greatest of all, as a friend and fellow artist. I have met some of the most amazing and inspirational people there, some of whom are now for me "Family" that I dearly love.
This fall and winter promises to be a highly productive one full of many new artworks. I have quite a bit of beadwork projects to do, as well as finally getting back in my studio and working on new glass work. So say tuned as they say!
Greetings. I am using this Blog to show the artwork I do. I make original Plains and Plateau style Indian art, based on 19th century aesthetics and use authentic materials that were available in that time frame (1820-1900). I also restore and do conservation work of antique Indian art. I am a Tribally Certified Indian Artist and in full compliance with the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. Recently I have been exploring the world of art glass and the ways of incorporating it into a modern expression of established tribal art forms. Lastly, my other passion is horses. They often influence my work, and give much to my soul. I have quite a bit of material posted on here, so be sure to look back at the earlier entry's. Thank You for looking at my work, and I hope you enjoy it.
