My latest woven basket illusion, a ceremonial basket design that I call Navajo Rain Cross. The cross symbol can also be found on Navajo rugs and pottery and is often used to represent Spider Woman, the first Navajo deity. The basket is twelve inches in diameter and the wood is maple. Beading, pyrography and ink were used to create the basket illusion. It was donated to the SWAT 2019 Symposium and selected as an auction item.
The Tübatulabal are an indigenous people of the Kern River Valley area of Southern California and are related to the Aztec. The literal meaning of the name is "pine nut eaters". Stones were heated in a fire and then placed in the baskets to cook the food. This basket illusion measures 13⅝" diameter and about 3½" deep. The wood is maple. It was donated to the 2017 Christmas auction of the Woodturners of North Texas.
My gosh, I have just seem some of the most beautiful platters in my life! I love these! I was perusing Facebook and found the link to these on the Easy Wood Tools time line, you can see the actual image and caption at Easy Wood Tools Facebook Page. There is something about these that would make me reach really deep into my pockets and pull out some hard earned money and purchase these, at all costs! I am hooked! Love em!
