The Last Straw: A Straw Bale Home Built With Native American Wisdom

Solar energy and natural materials make this artist's home an inspired hideaway.

From the ancient Anasazi culture comes a collection of circa 1300 manos—grinding stones—displayed on a hand-hewn Oriental bench, here, and a Kayenta black-on-white pot, circa 1300, which rests atop a 1750’s Welsh bridal armoire, opposite.
