Pipestone

In 1836 George Catlin, American artist and writer, visited the Sioux Indiana in the upper midwest and collected samples of a red stone for analysis. The stone, which Native Americans used for making pipes, was subsequently named Catlinite in George Catlin's honor. Pipestone National Monument, a 282 acre area near Pipestone, Minnesota, was established in 1937. It is legally quarried only by American Indians. Read about stones

He learned the basics of quill working, weaponry, sculpting and pipe making from traditional and contemporary artisans in his family circle. He is a fifth generation master pipe maker. In his sculptures, Monroe works with a variety of materials such as pipestone, bone, wood and alabaster. He creates small objects like fetishes to large pieces than can weigh hundreds of pounds.
