How to make a Purchase

Arlan Dempsey is of Laguna / Navajo heritage. He has been working with clay since the 1990s creating white or gray clay masks and dance figures. He has been exhibiting since 1994 principally at the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Arts and Crafts Show. His favorite design is the Navajo Ye'ii Bicheii.

His work has been published in Hayes & Bloms "Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni", and Dr. Gregory Schaaf's book "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies".

This is a stunning piece with wonderful detail in the feathers and mantel. Arlan does an extraordinary job conveying motion in the ripples of the clothing - a very strong presence of Spirit.
