Lightning Baskets (1995)
Three mesmerizing strikes of tsi niltł’ish (lightning) appear to leap across a black sky. Is a swirling wind accompanying them? "My Dad does lightning healing ceremonies. We need to maintain balance with this powerful force,” says Elsie Holiday who created the design for this set of baskets. In both baskets, lightning strikes from the center of the basket to the outer edge. The form of the first basket is open while the second is a bowl with a 10-pointed star. Each share an overstitched black rim.
