Faye Quandelacy was the first Zuni carver that I know of to receive a formal art education. She studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe with the great Hopi sculptor, Alan Houser. Upon returning to Zuni she went about teaching her family new skills. Faye's art is a merger of traditional Zuni fetish carving (folk art) with subtle elements of great sophistication.
