Raymond Tsalate

From new apprentice to prize-winning artist in only 12 years! That is the trajectory of Ray Tsalate’s artistry. Working with Troy Sice, known for his wonderful antler carvings, Ray has developed his own style, often incorporating shells and stones, as well as hand-carved, natural antler.
With a sense of whimsy and a touch of the magical, each of his pieces is distinctive. Ray is inspired by the natural world, and by various tales of Zuni lore. His work is technically exact, and visually enchanting.
