Dyaami Lewis is the son of Laguna Pueblo artist, Greg Lewis. In 1980, Dyaami, meaning “Eagle” in the Keresan language, was born into this family of metalsmiths. At the young age of eight, Dyaami picked up his first tools and began his apprenticeship under his father’s guidance. He is a master silversmith today. The style of silver-work made by Greg and Dyaami is called repousse relief decoration. This is a bronze-age metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side.
