Daniel Chattin

A young, award-winning, Zuni fetish carver who specializes in Corn Maidens, especially sinuous abstract ones carved into large conch shells, other luminous sea shells, or turquoise and other semi-precious stones.
He is married to Jovanna Poblano, who makes sophisticated bead jewelry, and often collaborates with her, adding a wearable Corn Maiden pendant to her necklaces.

Daniel’s work was featured in the national museum exhibit “Changing Hands: Art without Reservation, Contemporary Indian Art of the Southwest”, originated by the American Craft Museum, in New York City, and has been awarded prizes at prestigious shows, nationwide.
