Each of his astonishing pieces

are carefully crafted by laminat-

ing wood of the aspen. Each of

his vibrant paints are hand-

made egg tempera, using

plants, minerals and insects.

This is the work of award win-

ning artist Daniel Moya.

Born in Pojoaque Pueblo, and

raised in northern New Mexico,

it was natural for Daniel to

gravitate toward the arts.

Through his artistic exploration

and residencies in such far flung

places as Russia, China, Europe

and Latin America, Daniel has

interpreted his cultural legacy

in a medium totally of his own

making.

In 2009, Daniel was awarded

an Artist Fellowship by the

Southwestern Association for

Indian Arts, an award pre-

sented to just five promising

Native American artists.

Daniel currently is a featured

artist in our Scottsdale gallery,

as well as on our website.

RAGUA

Famous for his work in stone

and bronze, Cliff Fragua

(Jemez Pueblo) is reaching into

a totally new world for him.

The art of glass blowing.

Fragua has spent much of the

past year learning about glass

art and how to translate tradi-

tional designs into a most non-

traditional medium for Native

American artists.

Cliff’s initial six pieces can be

seen exclusively on our website

and in our Scottsdale gallery.

The glass work includes the

stunning vase, shown at the

right, entitled

Ancestral Voice.

It

measures 12.5” high and is 12”

in diameter.
