Her Storytellers are known for the "Prayer Feathers" that adorn each one. Snowflake Flower states, "I began putting these feathers on top of each figure in 1983 when my daughter, Patricia Ann Loretto,went into a coma. I continued to put these feathers on my figures so the prayers for her recovery would be spread through more and more people. Finally, on December 21, 1999, our prayers were answered when my daughter woke up after being asleep for 16 years!" from "Southwest Pottery" by Dr. Gregory Schaaf. As Snowflake Flower works she sings songs her mother and father taught her. She remembers expressions on the faces of loved ones, their response to a funny story, the Snowflake Flower singing grandfatherpleasure of a life shared with children. These are the qualities reflected in her work.
