Dennis Chuculate (Acoma Pueblo/Cherokee) has spent his life surrounded by the various art styles of his heritage. He was taught the traditional southwest pottery in the style of the Acoma Pueblo’s by his grandmother and various other mediums in various school settings throughout childhood. Being surrounded by the cultural arts of both his tribes, he has blended the designs to create a style unique to him. It gives his work a whimsical feel as he makes statement rings and bracelets out of gold, silver, and copper, adding heavy gauges cut and filed into eye-catching designs set with beautiful semi-precious stones and gems combined in a playful and striking color combination.
