When your Solar Plexus is a Solar System

This is a fun piece. The Goddess Morrigan,  a celtic mythological warrior, great Queen.   She was closely connected to Epona, who shows up in another piece.

She has a crow for hair, and her solar plexus is wide open, and inside is one (of what I’m sure is infinite solar systems). I made sure to put a spiral in there to keep that energy moving. She sits on distressed wood and has a transparent shear dress on, allowing you to see her body.   She represents Fate, Shape Shifting, Protector of the land, and it’s clans.  She dates back to the copper age.

Clay “Paper” dolls

I used to spend hours with paper dolls.  changing outfits on flat, lifeless doll shapes… They seem silly, but there is something real creative about them.  These are a ceramic version of those flat dolls.  They are colorful and fun, hang from white cotton cord, ready for a window, a wall or a mobile.  Their arms and legs are wired on separately to give them a real puppet feel.  I think these are perfect for a little girl’s room window 🙂

 

Tribal Energy

DSCN3082This piece is pretty different. I got my hands on a great piece of wood with a really interesting shape. I set a mask made from several handbuilt clay pieces on the face of it. I then added very unique “hair” using glass beads and the coolest rocks I found on the beach in Jacksonville Florida. The rocks are unlike any I have ever seen before and have incredible character. these rocks all have natural holes in them, which I remember calling hag stones back in the day. This piece is fairly large, and hangs on a wall. You’ll never find another like it. Has a real tribal feel to it. Not sure which gallery it’s going to yet! DSCN3079
