An unknown Tohono O’odham weaver made the tiny yucca baskets that serve as the foundation for these miniatures. The two blue baskets were completed by Navajo artisan Shirley Kills-in-Sight of cut-glass beads. The yellow basket was beaded by Mary Ann Begay. All three baskets show unusual precision in their colors and design. This is a highly unusual and desirable collection.


About the artist:

Shirley Kills-in-sight

Unrivaled in the rare and delicate work of beaded baskets, Shirley Kills-in-Sight takes the art form to perfection with the use of tiny size 14 beads- as many as 200 per square inch- and her ability to maintain optimal symmetry.

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?
