Carlton Jamon – Zuni
Carlton Jamon grew up in Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico. He learned silversmithing from his grandmother Cornelia and his mother Winnie. He started his career in 1984 with the intent to innovate away from the Zuni lapidary tradition. His goal has been to learn and master techniques such as engraving and detailed cut out work. He calls his work “silver lace”. He founded the Zuni Cultural Arts Council. Carlton regularly shows at Santa Fe Inidan Market. In 2012 he won first prize in “Contemporary Use of Material”.
