Bryant was born in To’hajiilee, NM in 1983. He describes his work as “saw cut”. Silver Sun is very pleased to have this young artist who takes pride & satifaction in his work.
Bryant is a self-taught silversmith. He has been training himself for about 6 years. His mother, Irene, was a smith, but she quit when he was born, so he never got to watch or learn from her. He did inherit her tools.
“Imagination is the start of art,” says Bryant. He is very intense and fully absorbed when he is creating his art. He glues his pattern to a sheet of silver then begins to cut out the design in one meticulously executed line.
Bryant is from the Water Edge (Mom) and Sage Brush (Dad) Clans. He wants to learn more about his traditions. He also wants to pass on his talent to the next generation. When people respond positively to his art, “it makes me feel good inside,” he says.
