Delwyn Harvey

Kachina Carver

Artist Profile

Delwyn Harvey, “Wea” (One of a kind), was born into the Hopi-Tewa reservation in 1965. He is a member of the Kachina Crow Clan. A self taught artist, Delwyn has been carving Hopi kachinas since 1978.

Delwyn hand carves cottonwood root into magnificent full bodied kachina dolls with a simple tool like a pocket knife. His carvings are carved with extreme precision and detail. He applies acrylic paints to his dolls and paints them very carefully because it is essential for the Hopi people to represent the kachina as accurately as possible. Many of his dolls are carved from one continuous piece of cottonwood. Some of his dolls are sought by collectors all over the world. Delwyn signs his dolls: D. Harvey. He is related to Nuvadi Dawahoya (brother-in-law) and Gene Dawahoya (brother-in-law).
