Description

Internationally celebrated, Tony is one of only a few Native glass artists, and one of even fewer who uses the hot-blown glass technique exclusively.

He attended prestigious art schools and worked with the great glass artist Dale Chihuly, but Tony’s work always refers to his Pueblo roots.

Bears are a favorite subject. They are guardian animals, hunting fetishes, and protector figures.

Their power, intelligence, and survival skills have made them major totems for almost all tribes.

This medium-sized bear – a cub? – is a handsome, hot pink-hued fellow.

When light is behind it, the bear is a beautiful, transparent, bright pink with hints of yellow.

Within the glass is a pattern of darker strokes that resemble the furry pelt of a bear.

His fluid shape is abstract, but the pointy muzzle and little ears, as well as the gracefully massive bulk, are definitely bear-like.

Luminously beautiful, by a recognized master, and very accessible, this beautiful bear will delight your eye and protect your home.
