Kenny Chavez, Zuni
Kenny does great bears. This one is really unusual as it has the appearance of two different shades of crystalline minerals fused together, but it is natural. It looks like candy. I had another piece, by a Lena Boone, of the same stone, so some of the rough material must have been available in Zuni for a time.
Almost all of Kenny's pieces have sterling silver accents; usually the eyes and/or a heartline.
