Tufa Cast Sterling Silver Ring w/ Natural Bisbee Turquoise by Monty Claw
True West, Santa Fe Presents: Monty Claw
Monty is a Navajo artist from Gallup, NM who specializes in making fine jewelry, Peyote style fans, beadwork, and paintings. Monty's work is built on patience, love and hard work. Much of his work created through being self taught as an artist and pushes himself to a bold, clean, and creative look.
He studied at the Institute of American Indian Art, the premier school in the country for post-secondary arts education especially for Native Americans but is predominantly self-taught. Among his recent prizes were First Prize at the Gallup Ceremonial and Santa Fe Indian Market and a Fellowship from the Wheelwright Museum, in Santa Fe.
