Since way back in
2005, we have offered over 130 of Ramson's carvings to our collectors.
Ramson has retired from creating his world class kachina dolls, as he pursues other interests, including
glass art and teaching.
As Ramson retires from creating his famous kachina carvings, so does River Trading Post
close out a great relationship with this very special artist.
Treasure your Ramson kachina doll. There won't be another one.
