I'm still sculpting predominantly older American Indians as well as horses and bison. I have clay with me no matter where I am. Sometimes I sit along a river and sculpt and sometimes I'm in the corner of a basement and sometimes at the table in my Badlands studio Because of the slow down last year dud to Covid I did an Historical Renovation Project on a Museum site of one of the oldest Ranches in Nebraska I’m presently adding on a structure to the adobe using 140 year old beams from a Wyoming mine brought to the Badlands years ago.
Sagebrush was used by Native Americans for ritual incense, shelter, cordage and baskertry. The fruits were use fresh, dried and pounded into a meal. They are known to smudge their homes with sagebrush to chase away evil spirit.
