Daughters of Mary Holiday Black, Sally and Lorraine Black are two of the most recognizable names in Navajo basket-weaving. In fact, their family was integral to the whole revival of basketry. Both known for their innovation and unique contemporary designs (as well as their traditional ceremonial baskets), they are truly master weavers.
Lorraine Black - Navajo Basketweaver: Inspired by dreams, Lorraine Black's skills have literally elevated basket weaving to new dimensions. Famous for her Horned Toad story basket, a three dimensional piece that won first place in the Navajo Show at The Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, as well as an award at the Gallup Ceremonials, Lorraine's work is distinctively original.
