Leo Poblano (1905–1959)

Leo Poblano was famed for his carved fetishes and inlaid jewelry.At a time when most Zuni jewelers were content working with traditional themes and materials, he experimented. He was an accomplished sculptor and mosaic worker and a veteran of World War II, where he served on the Zuni firefighting crew. He taught himself to carve using hand tools, including a pump drill and a hand grinder. He did not convert to an electric grinder until the late 1950's.
