Additional Info

Jayne Quam is a Navajo woman married to a Zuni man, Lynn Quam, a fetish carver of high repute himself. Jayne and Lynn live with their children at the Zuni Pueblo. Jayne has been  known for her "loving pairs" of wolves, bears and other creatures, and her six directions sets. Recently she has been extending creative reach by by inlaying shell and stone on the surface of single creatures, such as this badger. 

We are honored to have been guests in the Quams' home here we have purchased carvings by both Jayne Quam and Lynn Quam. (There's always some controversy in describing the tribal standing of an artist who marries a spouse from another tribe. We prefer to identify Jayne both by her birth tribe and her "adopted" tribe, techniques from which she has adapted skillfully.
