Joseph works with natural materials found throughout the Southwest. The materials he primarily carves from include: alabaster, serpentine, picasso marble, jet, dolomite, amber, argyte and sillonite. His distinctive animals include life-like respresentations of bears, turtles, eagles, coyotes, buffaloes and several others. His carvings are enhanced by either a solid or multi-color inlaid heartline or a prayer bundle containing arrows, feathers and heishi that he places on the backs of his carvings. Joseph is proud and honored to be artistically gifted with this special talent. He is also extremely enthusiastic about sharing his carvings with all who respect and appreciate his artistic abilities and his cultural background. He signs his carvings as: J.B.
