A fantastic set for both the serious collector and anyone that appreciates Zuni art.
Dainty & lightweight
Frank Dishta (1902 - 1954) was born on the Zuni Pueblo and began silversmithing in 1924. He quickly became a master of the channel inlay technique. His works are part of the permanent collection at the Heard Museum in Santa Fe, NM and in other national museums and galleries. His work and the work of his descendants are highly collectible.
Virgil Dishta, son of the creator and master of the channel inlay technique, Frank Dishta, began learning the art of jewelry making as a young boy from his father. He began carrying on the famous Dishta style full time in the 1940s. His descendants continue to produce the same style of work originally created by their grandfather.
