Native American Artist: Tim Yazzie
Tim Yazzie is a Navajo, San Felipe, Santo Domingo silversmith. He was taught by his maternal grandfather the traditional ways of life, their tribal history, and religion. His maternal grandmother was a pueblo potter, and his paternal grandfather was a rug weaver and silversmith. Tim studied jewelry making with well-known native artists to include Chalmers Day and Jimmy Harrison. Tim Yazzie combines his fine inlay and stone work with the pottery designs in his silver overlay work, making his pieces one-of-a-kind.
