Beaded Pomo Gift Basket: Heat Waves (1972-1975)
This basket was commenced during 1972 and completed in December 1975. It is constructed of gray willow coil sewn with sedge root in single-rod technique. The design of blue and white glass seed beads represents heat waves rising. An excess of 6,000 beads have been sewn in during the weaving process to create the design, each bead tied into a separate stitch. The rim is fringed with loops of matching blue and white beads.
