When Lorraine Black walked into the Trading Post with this basket she had a story to tell. It seems she was gifted a book of photographs on Native American chiefs. She greatly appreciated the gift, but found the book lacking on images of Navajo chiefs. Lorraine decided to weave one of her own, one that was more impressive and attractive than any represented within the pages of that book. With a great deal of time, imagination and talent, (along with a contribution of mane and tail from her horse Otis) she created a masterwork.


About the artist:

Navajo Basket Artist Lorraine Black

Inspired by dreams, Lorraine Black's skills have literally elevated basket weaving to new dimensions. Lorraine Black's infectious laugh belies the serious magic her hands conjure up when weaving a basket. Unprecedented in her ideas, Lorraine's baskets are innovative and beautiful. Many of them make good use of texture through over-stitching and the addition of objects such as flint arrowheads or horsehair.
