I am attracted to and awed by all things wild and wonderful! I think my art work embodies this love of enchantment and magical wonder, through an eclectic variety of art, doll sculpture, crystal orbs, and glass spirit vessels and other things I love to create. This week I have had fun, making beautiful magic wands!
The wands are made from driftwood, beach glass, crystals, glass tiles, beads and other found embellishments. The seem to hold such powers of intention!
Not long ago, my friend Judy, gave me a huge collection of beach glass that was given to her by a woman who had been collecting it for decades. Some of the glass has the date of 1946 on it! It’s magical how it found its way to me….what a gift!
Now this is what I call treasure! It was like she had given me a bucket of gold!
I love using this old water worn glass on the Spirit Vessels that I make. On a cup like form, I place more treasure……shells, jewels, dichroic glass, tempered glass and driftwood. In each piece, I place a little word or message under the glass with the intention that someone will pick up the vessel, and know intuitively, that the message and vessel were made especially for them.
My friend Janet, described these vessels so perfectly……….
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.
We are all spirit vessels. What do you hold precious inside of you?
