Bryant Martinez (Navajo)

Tribe: Navajo
Bryant was born in To’hajiilee, NM in 1983. He is from the Water Edge (Mom) and Sage Brush (Dad) Clans. Bryant is a self taught silversmith. He has been training himself for about 6 years. His mother, Irene, was a smith, but she quit when he was born. He never got to watch or learn from her. He did inherit her tools, however he wants to learn more about his traditions. He also wants to pass on his talent to the next generation. He now lives in Albuquerque with his three year old son, Elliot.

He describes his work as “saw cut”. When people respond positively to his art, “it makes me feel good inside,” he says. “I love what I do; it feels more like a hobby than work. I have learned to express myself through my work; I’m always looking for a challenge, anything is possible and there are no bad ideas… He is very intense and fully absorbed when he is creating his art. “Imagination is the start of art,” says Bryant.
