bound

February 25, 2015

snow woods

Bound in white. Bound in time and space. Yet each constriction seems to allow a more expanded creative journey. A little web in the upper back hall that hangs just so, just below the north window in the spare room a pink sweater has fallen on an old brown box, next to the table at the top of the stairs the thin light picks out the faint blue and silver of a long forgotten stuffed animal. Inspiration flows from every tiny space – burnt orange and swamp green, black lines on old chalky white, the dog tucked in a perfect oval on the red chair. The elegance of the two toned enameled pie plate is one I wish to duplicate on a copper woman totem. This space grows and expands by the day.  Home travel. The back corners of the old corner cupboard are as compelling as any unknown continent.

When these spaces and objects are intimately experienced something palpable begins to flow out and seep in. While still up at the back end of the hall I am sent elsewhere. Now fully engaged in my own creativity I am completely unbound.

elses dog

 

“someone else’s dog, someone else’s clothes, someone else’s thoughts – examine your precepts”

This totem was made several years ago as a way to explore this idea that I am now bringing forth as one of my intentions of the year. ( See last post)

Totem by Jane Cather    copper nickel sterling brass enamel beach pebbles fossil – embossing, roll printing from plates etched with my artwork, fold forming, polymer sculpted face by artist, hollow forms, bezel set stones, fold forming – all elements made by artist

 

 

intentions

I-am-E

Don’t miss what the universe has to offer…………………..

just because it does not look like what you thought it would.

This year instead of resolutions I am setting some intentions. The intentions are created to act as awareness arrows. I will be guided to re-examine any beliefs that may have been silently absorbed by the culture and so bring myself into each present moment clear of any preconceived ideas.  Heartflow, freedom and adventure will fill the days.

time of the hearth

January 13, 2015

Winter’s cold collects us around the hearth. It is our time with fire. With my cloak pulled close – I settle in to hear the wisdom of all those long ago women who have tended at the hearth. Staring into the fire portal I feel the ancient female circle continuing to flow in and support.
