Hopi Katsina Carving, Jonathan Day, Jr.

This morning I went and sat with my cousin and we talked a bit while he was carving a Katsina doll. His dad, Jonathon Day Sr., was a Master Carver and is collected world-wide. Jonathan taught many of us how to carve, spending late nights in his shop, telling us why this is a responsibility as a Hopi father with daughters. His son, my cousin, Jonathan Day Jr., carries that skill now. He is a much better carver than I. We’re collaborating on this latest doll. I’ll make the jewelry accents. It was great to sit and reminisce. My cousin does do commissions if anyone is interested. Thx and Have a Great Day! #hopicarvers #hopihandmade #fromtheearthstudio
