American artist Ben Rouzie

Currently on display at Shiprock Santa is a collection of sculptural wood pieces by Ben Rouzie. A city planner in Winston-Salem, Rouzie was a self-taught artist who worked primarily in wood and passed away in 2016.

When his estate came up for auction, Shiprock Santa Fe recognized a unique opportunity to acquire a number of pieces by an extremely talented, and relatively unknown artist. While being known primarily for classic Native American weavings and jewelry, we always strive to include an array of eclectic vintage offerings from other parts of the world. These serving pieces and sculptural boxes have an American Craft aesthetic that would complement a wide array of home d├ęcor.
