Artist - Horace Iule

Horace Iule

Horace Iule (1901-1978) was an extremely influential silversmith. He became famous in his own right for his Knife-Wing designs and intricate crosses, but then became a silversmith teacher on the Zuni Pueblo, thus inspiring a new generation of artists. He was also able to pass on his talents to his children, most of whom continue to work as jewelers. Horace himself came from a family of silversmiths and was taught primarily by his father.

His legacy as a master silversmith lives on through his children, the students he inspired and the exquisite work that he produced.
