Evelyn Cly is revered for her high-quality ceremonial baskets. Medicine Men often refer their patients to Evelyn for one of her traditional baskets. The ceremonial basket is an essential element in the healing arts. With this basket, Evelyn strayed from tradition to create what she calls a “Modified Ceremonial Basket.” With slight variations on the theme, Evelyn weaves unique baskets that challenge her creativity and are provocative to other weavers and collectors alike.
