Reddish copper peaks out from beneath a flash of golden yellow enamel in this hand-hammered anticlastic copper cuff. Very smooth on the inside of the bracelet for a comfortable fit. The copper along the outer surface/exposed curve is left raw, so that as time goes by it will deepen with color, making this an ever-evolving piece.
The cuff is approximately an inch wide, the curve rising about a quarter inch. One-of-a-kind. Signed on the back.
This piece is made of hand-hammered brushed copper and brushed silver. The metals pick up light with a soft glow. The design on this piece reminds me of the southwestern mountain landscape where I grew up.
The clip is 1 1/2 inches long by 1/4 inch wide. Signed on the back.
I’ve been invited by the Arizona Sate Museum to be in the Southwest Indian Art Fair next week. I am really excited and have been creating a lot of new high-end work for the event. Many of the pieces are not yet pictured on this site.
There is a ten dollar admission to the show. According the the Arizona State Musuem:
the Southwest Indian Art Fair began in 1993 as a small pottery fair. Since then, it has grown to be the highlight of Arizona State Museum’s annual educational and cultural celebrations, as well as a highly anticipated feature of Tucson’s winter festival calendar. SWIAF, like all the museum’s events, promotes respect for and understanding of the region’s vibrant and diverse Native cultures. Your support of this event helps us support Native artists.
Come visit the fair! I’d love to see you.
