Philbert Honanie

Cotton Wood root, natural pigments and materials

Philbert Honanie is Coyote Clan from the village of Hotevilla on Third mesa. He is one of the first carvings to revitalize the old style or traditional method of Katsina doll carving. He only uses natural pigments that he collects and processes from around his village and gathers the cottonwood root that he carves from the San Juan river in southern Utah. He carves to help people understand and appreciate the Hopi culture and uses only an pocket knife to carve with, and keeps his dolls simple to help people appreciate the designs and motifs used in Hopi carving.
Mary Coriz Lovato

Inlay Jewlery

Mary Coriz Lovato, daughter of Santiago Leo Coriz, was born to the Corn Clan. Besides raising five sons to become accomplished silversmiths, Mary finds time to turn out some of the finest Indian jewelry found today, Mary's forte is inlaid shell earrings and pendants, a blend of the contemporary and traditional. Her work has become the standard by which shell inlaid jewelry is measured. Slivers of turquoise, pipestone, serpentine, coral, jet, and mother-of-pearl reflect the colors of the Sun's glow.
Ferris "Spike" Satala

Traditional Old Style Katsina Dolls

Ferris "Spike" Satala Spike is Bear Clan from the village of Shungopavi although he grew up in Polocca, He has been carving since he was 13 years old. He carves a unique style of doll. We call it a tapered doll. The story behind that style is: Starting from the feet; the feet are small because whatever we do in life you need to take small steps. The body is elongated so that we will have a long life. As he is carving he prays for a long life. The Arms are long and skinny because life is fragile. The Head is big so you can watch out for your ego. Spike is reminded of all this when he carves. He carved contemporary dolls before he did "old style". He started the old style because the market had changed. Once in a blue moon we will get a contemporary doll of his.

Established in 1976

The Winter Sun Trading Company was established in 1976 in Arizona by Phyllis Hogan. This unique family business is owned and operated by Phyllis and her two daughters. The shop specializes in Native American art and Southwest botanicals. The art gallery offers a wide range of genuine hand crafted jewelry, baskets, paintings, and a wide variety of Traditional style Hopi Katsina carvings.

The Winter Sun apothecary started with 25 plants. Most of those were ceremonial or ritual herbs. Today we offer one of the largest selections of organic and wild crafted herbs in the Southwest. Our plants are harvested at the time of their optimal strength and hand processed by knowledgable Winter Sun staff-- no animal testing is done. Our liquid extracts-- referred to as tinctures-- are easier to use, convenient, and more potent than tea. Our goal is to provide the finest service available to our wonderful patrons and we are glad to help you in any way.


Phyllis Hogan has been a practicing Southwest herbalist for 25 years. She is the proprietor of the Winter Sun Trading Company, located in Flagstaff, Arizona, USA established in 1976.
