The grandmother is carrying a basket of corn. In a graceful manner she bears the
load of corn. A blanket encircles her shoulders. Separately cast pieces form
the load of corn and the corn stalk. The original was created in clay with gold and
coral ears of corn, and a polished bronze and turquoise patina corn stalk. In this
collaborative work the jewelry pieces were created by Charles Suppleé,
an accomplished and talented Hopi jeweler. © 1995
