“When carving into clay, a door opens into the intangible, ephemeral. As each moment rises to meet the next, I shape symbols embodying lotuses, mudras, mandalas, altars, and vessels. Revealed to me are patterns of ancient stories, a perennial philosophy of timeless universal truths, conveying an evolution of consciousness - both within myself and the whole of humanity. 'Making' as a process of discovery, allows me to deepen my own authentic truth”.
These prints here at Red Fire North, originally found their voice as large and life-sized, ceramic wall reliefs.
Lotuses represent aspects of subtle energy, mapping out an inner landscape known as the chakra system.
Hand-building and carving the ceramic hands, hinted towards the meaning of my birth-name. An everyday tool, 'Hands' symbolize agency, communication, and an ability to facilitate healing. Ceramic planters are funky, seasonal wabi-sabi vessels, uniquely hand-built to hold a favorite flora for you or for gifting to a friend.
