Harry Morgan is a widely renowned and well respected Navajo silversmith and recognized as one of the outstanding Native American jewelers. Harry was born and raised on the Navajo reservation, began casting silver at age 7, started silversmithing at 12 years old, and has been a professional silver and goldsmith since 1965. He graduated from Gallup High School and received a 4 year scholarship from the Navajo Nation to study engineering, but Harry dreamed of being a rodeo cowboy. After achieving satisfaction in those endevours, Harry returned to making jewelry and has established a reputation for distinctively traditional pieces of great quality. Harry Morgan signs his work, "H. Morgan", and also stamps his pieces "Sterling." Harry Morgan is an incredible fifth-generation Navajo silversmith from New Mexico who has won many awards for his beautiful jewelry design. Harry is the nephew of two well known and popular silversmiths, Charlie Bitsue and Ike Wilson. Harry designs many of his pieces with some of his uncle's stamps that were used in their own jewelry collections. Today, most of their high quality creations are collector items and can be found in many museums. Harry gets his ideas for his creations from the natural elements, such as nature, canyons, colors, and the different times of the day. Harry Morgan - Navajo
Navajo smith Harry Morgan, perhaps more than any other silversmith, has been responsible for popularizing classic revival jewelry. Through his careful oxidation process, he causes his classic designs to actually look like old pieces from a bygone era. At one time he operated a smithing studio which employed many of the smiths who now carry on the classic revival style (notably Kirk Smith, but many others as well). His brother Henry Morgan mostly makes sandcast jewelry which he oxidizes in order to lend an old-style "dead pawn" look. Harry's sister, Linda Marble, worked in the sandcast technique until her death in 2004. Harry Morgan is married to Navajo smith Betty Joe and his stepson is Navajo smith Greg Pat.
