Artist Spotlight: Annie Antone

Annie Antone learned how to weave baskets from her mother, and sold her first basket at the age of nineteen for $10. She gave the money to her mother.

In making her baskets, Annie uses only plant materials harvested from her homeland, the Sonoran Desert. These include yucca, devil’s claw, and bear grass. Although her techniques in making coiled baskets are traditional, but her designs are completely unique. She specialized in highly graphic, pictorial imagery, and has even featured realistic images of panthers and semi-tractor trailers.  Ancient Hohokam pottery designs also provide Annie with inspiration for basket designs, as do the flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert. To achieve her complex designs, she carefully sketches them out before weaving.
