Important Early Collection by Charles Loloma

Coming from an important private collection, this group of work represents one of Loloma’s most productive and creative periods of his career. Made in the late 1960’s to early 1970’s, these pieces mirror the exuberance of the time, while drawing largely from pre-historic designs. Combining hand-drilled turquoise, shell and stone beads with classic fabricated and cast techniques, they are emblematic of the innovation that made Loloma one of the most respected and sought after artists of the twentieth century.
