Happy April Fool’s Day! I was thinking of playing some sort of trick in my blog, but with all that is going on it somehow did not seem appropriate! What did seem appropriate was to get on the wheel and my mind off the chaos and start working on a sculpture.
When thinking of cycles of spring and rebirth, the Tree of Life always comes to mind.
The tree of life is prevalent in the mythologies of the world. It is considered to be a symbol of creation and interconnectedness. Common roots of our world family can be found in this concept, and not just in some far off ancient texts.
And here is your first peak at my new raku sculpture! My goal when glazing this piece for the raku was to get some of the red/brown metallic colours on the piece of the trunk and some of golden silvery metallic colours elsewhere.
