Patty Dutchie was a member of the Ute Mountain Ute tribe. She learned beadwork and other traditional Ute traditions from her mother as a young girl. Among the many skills she was taught, Patty favored cradleboard creation, and over the years became a master of the artform. Patty's cradleboards reflect old style Ute cradles. Notice the high backboard and willow sun shade. Patty's cradle uses a plywood base for extra strength, and goatskin, rather than the traditional buckskin covering.

It was a gift to have Chue Thao teach our final fiber workshop. Here, students learned the art of Hmong Embroidery, engaging in an ancient art form and connecting with each other through fiber and conversation.

Do you ever notice the dessert doilies resting underneath delicious pastries in coffee shops? Well, this delicate six petaled doily, created by Chyleen MacKay, is nothing to be missed.

A doily is a decorative textile that became popular in the 1800s when Victorian women were taught needlework as young women. Doilies were used for serving food and protecting furniture.
Later, doilies were made using paper and used for serving food and other baked goods, where they earned the name "dessert doilies." Do you own any doilies?

Have you ever owned a tartan scarf? Comment below!
Anne Carroll Gilmour is one of the most talented tartan weavers in Utah. Anne's family moved from Nova Scotia to the US where Anne learned the art of weaving from Norman Kennedy. Tartan patterns are among the most difficult weaving patterns to learn, and Anne's beautiful piece above demonstrates the remarkeable intricacy of the design. Today, Anne's daughter, Lindsay Carroll Holt, carries on the beautiful tradition of weaving alongside her mother.

Jachelle Yazzie, comes from a family of talented Navajo artists. She began etching on greenware and practicing ceramics at a young age.

She participates each year in "Christmas at the Urban Indian Center" and the "Living Traditions Festival" in SLC. In each ceramic piece, Jachelle etches freehand, adding her own signature to distinctive Navajo designs that she learned from her mother.

Jachelle's signature design combines the stair design used by her mother and the triangle design used by her father. It can be seen on the bottom row of Luminous Sunshine (1) and the second line of the Tree of Life above (2). This innovative design allowing Jachelle to merge her appreciation of traditions in a contemporary manner.

These Buckskin Dolls, created by Clayton Sireech, are distinguished by their tiny decorative beads and dress in geometric shapes as Northern Ute in origin.

Clayton taught himself to work with buckskin and beads in his twenties to continue the work of his grandmother and father after spending his childhood attending schools away from home.

What traditions have you carried on from your family?

This intricately woven Huipil features a pattern of diamond shapes that represent the eye of God, or the creator. The four points represent the cardinal directions and the four elements of nature: earth, fire, air, and water. In such weavings, combining depictions of animals, plants, and the eye of God reflect the unity of the cosmos. Created by Elana Gomez Sanchez Lowe, the piece above preserves traditions of Oxchuc, a Maya Tzeital community of weavers of which Maria’s mother was one of the last practicing members. Maria and her sisters now weave and tell their work through a a group called Hermanas Maya Lu’um Cooperative. @textilesluum

Did you know that grave markers are folk art?

On most grave markers, you will find the birth and death dates of the deceased. But sometimes you will also find symbols that have been carved in the stone. Symbols like clasping hands are particularly common in Utah communities and symbolize the power of relationships that transcend death. Other depictions like hourglasses, crossbones, and skulls are reminders for the living of the fleeting nature of life. In ancient times, urns, weeping willows, and drapery were used to symbolize nature’s lament, the body returning to dust, and the soul passing through life and death.

What other grave marker symbols have you noticed? Link in stories for more info.

10/23/2019

Having always loved drawing, Harold began translating his experiences of western life and culture into traditional navajo beadwork at a young age. By stringing beads with meticulous attention to detail, Harold creates painterly images of the various elements of western life, such as horses, western landscapes, and rodeo activites out of thousands of tiny glass beads. Harold's folk art serves as a bridge between multiple cultures and multiple generations. Come see one of his horse medallions on display today! Swipe to see a piece that we recently commissioned for the State of Utah Alice Merrill Horne Art Collection.
