the art of Morris Muskett

woshdéé! welcome.

indexWelcome to my web site. I am Morris Muskett, a Diné (Navajo) silversmith, weaver and engineer. My art work is produced in a small workshop in Church Rock, New Mexico, which is on the Navajo Reservation. I produce each of my pieces one at a time by hand. I don't employ any other people in the creation of my work and none of my designs is ever mass produced. You can purchase my work with the knowledge that you will own an individual work by a tribally enrolled Diné artist.

In keeping with the Diné tradition of treading lightly on the earth, I use only reclaimed and recycled metals to produce my jewelry.

I'm able to show only some of my work online, so if you don't see exactly what you want, please contact me to see if I have what you are looking for or if I can make it for you.

Weaving Combs

--August 28th, 2015--

I am selling my last of the handmade weaving combs I have available for purchase. As a weaver, I traveled and collected Navajo made weaving combs that I considered special and gifts from Spider Woman. I did not make these combs.  Typically the weaving tool makers have weavers in their immediate family.  These are all made by Navajos on the Navajo Reservation.  I always encourage buy Navajo. Keep in mind these are handmade one at a time and not mass produced so they will not always be available.

I’ve listed below the last of the weaving combs in my inventory.  Email me at morrismuskett1@gmail.com if you have any questions.
