As always, we have a great selection of impressive pottery for your home decorating. Whether you want a molded or hand-coiled piece, we have something for your budget. We have pieces from award-winning artists like Maria Martinez, Wilfred Garcia, Glendora Daubs, Diane Lewis, Tom Tapia, Red Starr, Dennis Daubs and Emma Yepa.
Sculpture & Katsinas
We have a nice selection of large alabaster pieces carved by Marvin Toya as well as several of his smaller pieces. For the Hopi, the Katsinas have returned to their spiritual home but the carvers are still producing detailed representations. We have 60-plus pieces from Lawrence Dallas, Watson Namoki, Wayne Poleahla, Sterling McRae, Henry Fred, Raymond Chee, and many others.
Sandpaintings & Art
During the holiday shows, the new work by Sammy Myerson was once again a big hit. Sammy’s ability to present true traditional Navajo themes in such a contemporary form is second to none. If you have yet to see his new work, you are missing out! We will also be looking to add new work by Joe Ben Jr., Baatsoslanii Joe and Bilson Kee, to name a few. We will also be offering a few select pieces for SHOW SPECIAL pricing. This is your opportunity to acquire competition quality pieces at prices WELL BELLOW retail (LOOK FOR THE SPECIAL TAGS).
Carol Lee Thompson stole the show when it came to framed originals. We sold six of her fine pieces during our holiday shows as well as framed prints. At this writing, Carol is working on several originals for us and I am sure that as always, they will be impressive. If you are a Howard Terpning fan, we will have a custom framed print of the “Healing Power of the Raven Bundle” in inventory. This piece has come from Carol Lee Thompson’s private collection.
The holiday shows went very well. We sold a number of very nice weavings as well as pillow sets. We restocked our inventory with pieces from Bill Malone as well as the Winfield family. Weavings not much larger than 3 by 5 feet seem to be the winners so we will continue to focus our attention on these sizes. If you are looking for small accent pieces for tabletops and the like, we have been finding some very nice small weavings for this. They look great on a table under a piece of pottery or alabaster/bronze sculpture. We are usually able to have 10 to 12 of these pieces in inventory. Thank you all again for a great 2013 and your continued support of the fine art and weavings that we bring you!
