Innovators in Southwestern Jewelry

Contemporary Native American jewelry artists of the Southwest build upon centuries-long traditions of stonework and silversmithing—knowledge that is often passed on within families.

Unexpected Color: A Journey Through Glass  featuring the Thomas N. Armstrong III Collection of Steuben Glass.

This long-term installation showcases the collection of museum director Thomas N. Armstrong III. Discover how Carder experimented with glassblowing techniques to create vibrant jewel-toned colors, and follow that glass through multiple settings that Armstrong collected and used it in his homes. Carder’s designs were inspired by ancient Roman, Chinese, and Art Nouveau glass.
