Decorative wood pieces come in all sizes and shapes. Some are flat, some hollow, maybe even lidded. Additional inlays, overlays, and rim treatments can be added to create a specific effect. Other pieces may be the result of collaborative effort between Dave and his artist wife, Margaret. Her hand-painted pieces, such as the vase below, are one-of-a kind creations. She also hand-dyes or stains some pieces, and may add hand-laced leather rims, maybe with beads or feathers, to finish a southwest-inspired creation.

Red is an important color in Native American hand-crafts and artistry. You see it often in chief’s blankets and regalia. Different patterns have different meanings and often are representative of a particular ‘nation’ or tribe. Some of Dave’s pieces, like those you see pictured below, have been stained or painted to give a modern rendition of an old tradition.
