I wanted to create a basket that incorporated the four Lakota sacred colors of red, yellow, black, and white. As I was weaving the basket the colors kept circling in my mind: red, yellow, black, and white; red, yellow, black, and white. I wondered why this set of colors sounded so familiar to me.
Then I remembered the old Sunday school song:
Jesus loves the little children
All the children in the world
Red, yellow, black and white
They are precious in his sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world
So I thought “Ancient Values” was a spiritual statement in more ways than one. The ancient wisdom is that: All is One.

Hidden Light 2 ¾”H; 5 ¼”W; $325
7 ¾”D; Sold
I wanted to celebrate the angelic presence in our lives. And the concept of wings as a design element was very intriguing to me. Purple and turquoise have always been representative of the divine to me. The touch of gold indicates a holy light surrounding the event. When the wings are pointing upward, I see the vibration as being Active, Joyful, and Celebratory. When the wings are pointing downward, I see the vibration as Peaceful, Comforting, Protective.

Spirit 8”H, 8 ¾”W; Master 5”H, 5 ¼”W; Disciple 2 ¾”H, 3” W
The color brown represents earth and turquoise represents heaven. Bringing these two elements together with the spiritual discipline needed to become a disciple represents a spiritual journey to me. Although, this basket trio was a large undertaking for me, it was also a high point in my basket making as “Spirit” was the largest basket I have ever made. It will probably remain so, because it became very heavy to work with and took months and months to finish.

Service 1 ½” H, 9 ¼”W, 7 ¾”D; Reception 3” H, 6”D
The shallow bowl is Service, representing the openness of the energy of assistance. The smaller bowl is reception, representing a container in which to receive. Being of service and receiving go hand in hand, treating others and ourselves well. These two baskets are two of the few that have exposed pine needles. Exposing the needles actually changes the shape of the basket being created as there is a tiny bit less bulk in the wrapping of the pine needle bundles.
10” Diameter; $350
The rainbow swirl ends at the proverbial pot of gold in the center of the basket. I made it out of reed instead of the usual pine needles because at the time I had not been able to find enough acceptable needles.
