Some of my regular readers may be familiar with some of my past art projects like ‘The Healing Vase‘, which allow for audience/community participation. I launched a new project, in part inspired by the joy that project brought me, and by the current chaos in the world due to the global pandemic of the coronavirus. A recent update on that can be found here
My concept for this piece is to allow the process of raku and the flames of reduction to act as a communal intention and prayer for a better world. I am hoping that other dreamers will join me by commenting with their hopes and dreams for how our world could be a better place.
I will be printing or reproducing all of your comments to use as the reduction material in the firing process of this vase. For those unfamiliar with raku, you can view the video below to see what this firing process entails:
Co-creating the Vase of Dreams
For this particular vase – which will be fired tomorrow – I would like people to think about how the pandemic has impacted the world or your community and the changes you would like to see to make the world a better place. You can see some of the discussions that people are having about this here, and I hope you will add your voice.
Please leave your comments and ideas below for a better world. Feel free to even include a poem or a piece of creative writing. Hopefully this project will inspire hope at this time when many of us need it the most.
Please share this post so as many people as possible can participate in this project and we can spread the hope! You can do so by sharing the link to this blog directly, sharing this post from our facebook page or retweeting this tweet from our twitter account.
I hope for healing of every kind needed for each person on this planet. Some need physical healing, some emotional and yet others spiritual.
Thank you Angela! Definitely in agreement over here! Keep well! 🙏
I would wish that it were possible to heal the minds, bodies and souls of everyone so that the peoples of the world could live together in love and harmony.
Raku dreams in fire
Await a heated process
To bring hope for all
Thank you Tish! We wish for that as well 🙏
I hope that one day we can be together
In time all this pandemic stuff will pass. We will make it! 🙏
I wish for people to be more patient with themselves, and others.
This is a good one. We all need to be kind to ourselves. 🙏
In my opinion, the world needs to practice more empathy and understanding. Every one of us has been impacted in one way or another by the pandemic, I want to see unity and working together to make the world safer. 🌎
Empathy and understanding are extremely helpful! Thank you for sharing! 🙏
I cant wait to see the vase!
I wish for the world to bravely embrace the strength inside their souls to breed unity so that all life on earth could become whole.
Amen to that! 🙏
This is such a beautiful, inspiring project! Thank you for this healing act of creation. 💖
You are most welcome! Thank you for being a part of it!
