Atsatsa Antonio

Occasionally something truly unique strikes us as we walk through SWAIA Indian Market, this is true for the hand wrought and carved knives of Atsatsa Antonio. Only 17 when he won a fellowship from SWAIA in 2012, this promising young man from Window Rock, AZ, showed an innovative approach to forging found metals. Allowing some of the original metal to show, he finds purpose in objects that others would have cast aside. Currently attending Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, we know this young artist has a bright future!
