KACHINA CARVER
Kevin Horace-Quannie
Phoenix & Third Mesa, Hopi Indian Reservation

Over the past 32 years, Kevin Horace-Quannie has cut himself 10 times — not bad, considering what he does for a living. He's a Hopi/Navajo kachina-doll carver, and those nicks are just part of the job. "The knife is so sharp," he says. "All you have to do when you cut yourself is clean it out and use Super Glue." His award-winning carvings, which sell for between $100 and $10,000, are refined and elegant — his years of experience etched into each masterpiece. "My kachinas are very contemporary," he notes. "But they still represent the traditional style." He makes most of his pieces with cottonwood root, but Horace-Quannie likes to experiment, too. Recently, he's been creating bronze and glass kachina dolls, and he plans to produce a piece composed of all three materials. "Collectors want to see growth," he says. "They want to grow with you."

— Kathy Ritchie
