Like this striking black-and-white basket she recently created, Alicia Nelson is emerging as one of the bright young basket weavers of Douglas Mesa. This powerful graphic pattern recalls traditional Navajo stories of life’s emergence from the depths to blossom on the earth’s surface. This basket is a powerful combination of the traditional and contemporary in Navajo arts and crafts.


About the artist:

Navajo Basket Artist Alicia Nelson

Young and vulnerable to other's opinions, Alicia Nelson has nonetheless learned to trust her own instincts, and this has served her well as she has gone from being an apprentice basket weaver to an artist in her own right. Alicia trained under her mother-in-law, the famous Mary Holiday Black, recipient of the National Endowments 1995 Arts Heritage Award and fellowship. Alicia is one of only an estimated two dozen Navajo weavers who incorporate pictorial images into their baskets.
