Hank Blair explains details of a vintage Shiprock Ye'i

Prescott, Arizona Over 70 enthusiastic bidders made our first auction of 2009 successful and fun.   Vintage and Ye’i weavings were popular today, but the audience also took home their share of contemporary pieces as well.   Spider Rock Girls Emily Malone, Lavera Blake, Laramie Blake, Alyssa Malone and Rose Yazzie attended the auction.  Laramie is now a high school senior who is adept at combining an ambitious weaving schedule with her school work.    In the picture at right, she’s holding a Spider Rock rug woven by her sister Larissa.

We’re putting together a gallery of pictures from the auction and we’ll have it ready in the next few days.   The next auction on our schedule is on April 5th at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles.
