Stained glass workers in search of handsome, high-quality patterns will welcome this collection of designs based on traditional Native American themes. Approximately 120 identified patterns — shown as insets on the pattern page — have been adapted from authentic tribal motifs.
Here are striking designs fashioned after motifs from Seminole beadwork, an Apache basket, an Acoma polychrome vessel, pottery from the Santo Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico, an Arapaho rawhide bag, Zuni and Hopi pottery, New Mexican Laguna jars, Jicarilla Apache basketry, an altar with feathers, a Navajo weave of Germantown yarn, a Hopi ceremonial blanket, a detail of Mayan stonework from the Yucatan Peninsula, images from a Nez Percé woven bag, a thunderbird figure on a shaman's rattle from the Pacific Northwest, a design on a Blackfoot cradleboard (late nineteenth century), eagle feathers in an abstract design, and much more.
Shown in circular, rectangular, diamond-like, and other shapes, these dramatic, decorative elements can be incorporated into stained glass and other imaginative craft projects.
