charles pratt
As the boy watched the river flow, his future appeared before him. He listened intently as his grandfather spoke... watched closely as the old man's hands worked the riverbed clay. The people and animals born from sharp eyes and a skillful touch moved the boy. His heart was drawn to the power of sculpture.
The boy's soul was filled with inspiration. To this day that inspiration pours forth like the river. This is the story of Charles Pratt, a self-taught artist who is called a wizard and genius by his peers. Pratt's reputation is known throughout the world because of the great breadth of his work and the incredible depth of each individual piece. Using his Cheyenne-Arapaho heritage as a guide, Pratt breathes a unique brand of Native American poetry into his creations. This art is not bound by any particular medium or scale. He molds large, small, and even miniature sculptures out of cast bronze, metal and stone. Striking color and texture are added with his skillful use of silver and semi-precious stones, such as turquoise and coral.
