Peggy Black calls her most recent creation the “Both Ways Basket” for its opposing concentric rings of black and white sumac. Her circle-within-a-circle design produces an almost hypnotic swirl of energy and movement. Peggy’s basket reminds us that life does not travel in a straight line.

Navajo Basketry

Basketry is a woman's industry, which is also pursued by the nadle (he changes), hermaphrodites, or men skilled in the arts and industries of both men and women. Basketry, however, is not classified with textile fabrics (yistl'o), but with sewing (nalkhad). It is of interest also that, while the basket is in progress, the sewer is untouched and avoided by the members of her family?
