Life does not stop during these strange times – though the perspective is surely changing. With the world shifting each day, I am able to see more clearly those things which are truly important to living the life I want. I am taking this time to reflect on the kind of life best lived for me (don’t worry, pottery is of course in there) and personally, helping with healing is part of that best-lived-life.
In 2019 I was contemplating how I might integrate my own healing into my artistic process and how I might involve and possibly help others with their healing. After contemplating this for sometime, I came up with the concept for ‘A Vase of Healing’.
My concept is to allow the process of raku and the flames of the reduction process to act as a healing tonic for grief and pain, for myself, for our world, and for all who to choose to participate in this process collectively.
You can see learn more about the process and finale of the 2019 Healing Vase in the video below.
With the current pandemic in mind, I would like to extend an invitation for you to join the Healing Vase project for 2020. I plan to fire the piece this fall and would love your participation in healing together. I welcome you to visit the project page and add your Wishes for Healing for the current year.
Thank you and I hope you are keeping safe and well in this time of increased difficulty.
