Clifford Redeye III
Clifford Redeye III is an Onöndowa'ga:' (Seneca) artist from the Allegany Territory in Western New York. He has a background in pencil drawing and acrylic painting but has specialized in leather work since 2013. Clifford is self-taught and draws his inspiration from personal and Haudenosaunee stories, and from concerns for the natural world.
Most of his pieces are produced with vegetable tanned leather but he has also incorporated smoke tanned hides and antler carving into his projects. He uses hand tools such as a swivel knife, rawhide maul and various water and oil based dyes. His pieces are hand carved and constructed.
Clifford's work has been presented at the Onösahgwë:de Cultural Center, The University of Buffalo, University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, and the Woodland Cultural Center (Ontario, CA). He has also had pieces in various shows including at Ganondogan State Historic Site, The Heard Museum, Santa Fe Indian Market, and the Iroquois Museum.
