I'm in the midst of creating new work. As part of my creative process, I am reflecting on older works. This was part of my Spreading Centers series artist statement.
Awoke this morning feeling hopeful. There is a stripping away that is occurring in our culture. We seem to be getting to some raw nerve.
Will write more later. For now, I've got to hit the snow. The forecast is 55 degrees today and 60 degrees tomorrow. My love affair with this trekking bliss is coming to its end....
My "Offering" series is an exploration of creativity as a sacred act. I love working with the bead form as a meditational tool. When working the clay, I feel a soul connection with the ancient past. The first people come to mind. And like the first people, I connect with the bead as one of the original expressions of beauty. The sculptures that are the result of my bead work carry a sense of devotion. I'm excited to see where working this way will take me.
