A Walk Beneath the Clouds

Photo copyright Wings, 2014; all rights reserved.

Today at The NDN Silver Blog, it's another straightforward feature, but it gets there by a winding trail. It's one of Wings's smaller pieces, very simple, but both beautiful and beautifully symbolic.

Shares of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, welcomed with our thanks. Please also share our Friday piece, a profile of Wings's niece, a brilliant Native potter. For those of you on Facebook, please also go here, to the Facebook Page of the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum, and like and share their post highlighting her profile.

I am still dealing with a severe autoimmune crash and post-concussion fallout, among other things. I won't be around socially for quite a while yet.

At Summer's End, the Way of the Sun

Now up at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a short reflection on the way of the sun, and the role it plays in our seasons and our daily lives, by way of one of Wings's pieces.

Shares via the social-media buttons at the bottom of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, are welcomed with our thanks.

Also, if you haven't yet seen yesterday's artist profile, please check it out: It's our latest artist, who is Wings's niece, our neighbor, and an accomplished Native potter. Please share the link to her profile widely; her work is brilliant and deserves the widest possible audience.

Come and Meet Our Latest Native Artist!

Photo copyright Wings, 2014; all rights reserved.
Today at The NDN Silver Blog, it's our Friday Feature, and it's something incredibly exciting. It's also something that is incredibly important to us personally: We're introducing you to a new artist — new to us carrying her work, that is. She's neither new at art nor new to us personally; she's Wings's niece, and she's an incredible talent and a  wonderful human being.

So come and meet Taos Pueblo potter Camille Bernal, look at some of her latest gorgeous work — and please, share it with everyone in your networks. She already gets quite a bit of local and regional exposure, but we'd like her to be known by our circle of friends and client base, and by all of their friends and family, as well. Please go to this link and share it, whether via the social-media buttons at the bottom or by copying and pasting the link. Shares of Wings's main page are welcomed, too.

Chi miigwech and ta'a from both of us.

#TBT: Spirit, Both In and Of the Stone

It's Throwback Thursday again at The NDN Silver Blog, and today, it's old-school in two ways: spirit, and stone.

Shares via the social-media buttons at the bottom of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, are welcomed with our thanks. Be sure to check in tomorrow, when we'll be profiling someone very special to us, along with some very special art.

Finding Buffalo

New at The NDN Silver Blog, it's chimera and ephemera, a little of dreams and visions and hope for salvation, something transitory and insubstantial for those to whom it doesn't belong, but very, very real to those to whom it does.

Pilots and Paiutes and Aztecs

It's Turquoise Tuesday at The NDN Silver Blog, and today, it's another in Nevada's fabulous stones: Pilot Mountain turquoise.

I'm hellishly short on time today, with a thunderstorm imminent as I type this and horses to be brought in to safety, so I apologize for the relative dearth of imagery in today's post. The one piece shown (sold years ago now) should make it worth the visit; it's a truly amazing stone.

Hope.

Today's post is now up at The NDN Silver Blog, with one small caveat: The sales information for the featured image is not yet included; I'll update it accordingly later this evening. It launches a new Monday photographic feature series, since we concluded the last such series last week.
