Crystalline Pottery by Diana Begner
The native basketry of the American Southwest and California is among the finest in the world. Tribes living in Arizona, Nevada and California used the native plants and grasses of their homelands to create a myriad of intricately woven shapes and designs, both for trade and for personal use. The baskets you see here are all fine examples of one of the most ancient American arts, and their beauty and variety reflects the skill and creativity of the women who made them. We are especially fortunate to be able to present examples of Eskimo basketry from the Schiffman collection, all made from walrus ivory and baleen.
