I love making crowns and embellishing vintage hats!
Sometimes it can take weeks for inspiration to visit me and give a nudge to busy my hands. However, I have learned to be patient and eventually ideas come through and I am happily flowing in my “imaginary world” once more. This time, the idea of making crystal and glass balls manifested. I love orbs, sparkle, whimsy, glass and glitter, so this project came easily. When I hold these glass orbs, they make me feel I am holding a ball of treasure….beautiful, powerful, and magical!
When I started this sculpture, I didn’t have an angel figure in mind, however, she showed up when I was having difficulty deciding how to design the back of her. I felt an urge to add wings and as soon as I did that, the rest of her effortlessly came together.
I named this piece, “CALLING ALL ANGELS”, because the song “Calling All Angels”, by Jane Siberry, kept swirling in my head while making her. I especially love the part that goes:
“CALLING ALL ANGELS,
CALLING ALL ANGELS,
Walk me through this one
don’t leave me alone.
Calling all angels,
calling all angels,
’cause we’re not sure how this goes.”
come from a magical place
in a world away from normal words.
They look like where angels and nature devas
would place their most precious secrets,
medicines and ingredients from which they would
concoct their Divine healings.
I think we are all spirit vessels. What do you hold precious inside of you?
DREAMS, CREATIVE IDEAS, LOVE, HEALING ABILITIES, SOUL EXPANSION?
Let us share what we have inside of us with the world.
I finished my latest sculpture and am inspired to call it, “METAMORPHOSIS”.
METAMORPHOSIS, is about transformation, waking up…coming out of our deep sleep, and our limited perceptions of who we are, and what is going on in this world. Awakening to the realization that there is more to this world than what our 5 senses show ……remembering who we really are…..unlimited consciousness, experiencing limited consciousness…..in the process of waking up to TRUTH, LIGHT AND LOVE.
Today, the learning curve on creating a first blog post, hit a few snags! But I perserver and hopefully posting pictures gets easier! The following photos are samples of the variety of projects, that have captured my interest over the past few years.
I went deep into the creation of fused glass window hangings…covering the studio windows…… the theory being….more was better!
Made hundreds of little spirit dolls, made from driftwood, bits of fabric and embellishment…… and always with a soulful message.
Sometimes my creativity dips into paint and collage….. and always with feminine energy in mind.
A slight obsession with crown making and mannequin head painting, continues.
Inspired to make feminine figurative art through glass and embellishment sculptures.
May we inspire one another to live fully in our creativity… in whatever area that may be!
