er and story teller for the tribe. The turtle keeps the narratives
shielded and protected under its shell until it’s ready to share
them. Randy’s turtle storytellers are coil built and are finished
and burnished by hand.
Randy also frequently uses the bear as one of his subjects. Bears
represent the male facet of the tribe with their strength and cour-
age. Like the turtle storytellers, the bears are also hand-built, but
are wet sanded to get the finished sheen. All Randy’s characters
are well known for their cheerful, animated expressions.
Randy has worked as a clay artist since he graduated from
IAIA. He is in numerous museum collections including the
Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, The Denver Art Museum,
Colorado, and The National Museum of the American Indian
in Washington, D.C. among many others. He is a past winner of
a Southwestern Assoc. for Indian Arts Fellowship and is also a
Dubin Fellow at The School of American Research. Randy has
accumulated many other awards and distinctions in his produc-
tive career.
Randy is married to his bride of 30-plus years, Jackie Carpio,
whom he met in Mrs. Loloma’s clay class. Randy and Jackie have
two sons, Hollis and Dillon. Randy currently resides in Santa Fe,
New Mexico.
