Tune into SAR Artists Live on Wednesday, September 21 at 6:00 p.m. MDT!
Siblings David Gaussoin (Picuris, Diné/Navajo), Wayne Nez Gaussoin (Picuris, Diné/Navajo) and Tazbah Gaussoin (Picuris, Diné/Navajo) stem from a long line of artists on their mother’s side with various silversmiths, painters, rug weavers, sculptors, and wood workers.
In the image above, a metal boa wraps like a sculpture around Tazbah’s neck. Adorned with feathers and sterling silver features, ‘Postmodern Boa’ is a collaboration between Gaussoin brothers David and Wayne Nez.
The family of intergenerational artists are celebrated for their fusion of traditional techniques, such as Tufa casting and hand stamping, with contemporary, seemingly avant-garde applications.
David Gaussoin and Tazbah Gaussoin, both members of the Pueblo Pottery Collective, join SAR Artists Live on Wednesday, September 21, 2022. Tune in to learn about their curatorial perspectives on ‘Grounded in Clay: The Spirit of Pueblo Pottery’ as well as their respective creative practices.
