If you are familiar with Brian Yatsattie's work you will have heard of the materials Fordite and Surfite. Both are repurposed, man-made, and beautifully colorful. Fordite comes from the Ford motor company and is the accumulation of
car paint run-off . Surfite is similar and is the accumulation of colored resins used to make surf boards. Here Brian has used both materials to overlay a mosaic onto high quality jet to create this very modern Medicine-bear
). This one of a kind piece is about 2" long and 1 3/4" tall with eyes of inlaid turquoise.
