These have not one thing to do with bison, but they there is so much talent put into these creations .... we put them both in the store and in this special Holiday page. Joyce lived in Hawaii before moving to Albuquerque, NM. Thus the one gourd that simulates the deep blue of the South Pacific Ocean. Call it simply "Ocean"
The carved cats look just one degree away from twitching their tail. "Cats"
The deep cuts of "Swirls" throw shadows of light and dark in patterns that constantly change.
You don't have to own these to appreciate the artistry and craftspersonship Joyce puts into her works. Once again, museum quality work
