The Healing Vase Project – Fall 2020

In 2019 I was contemplating how I might integrate my 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 for a Vase of Healing is to allow the process of raku and the flames of the reduction process to act as a healing tonic for your grief and pain, for mine, and for all who to choose to participate in this process collectively.

Please share one of the following in the written words of your choice in the comments below:

  1. The type of healing you are seeking in your life;
  2. The name of a loved one you have lost;
  3. Something you want to let go of that is no longer serving you in your life; or,
  4. The name (first name only), of someone you want to send healing energy too.

  1. Bill who was lost to his family too young, January 2017. He had an open heart and soul. Today, I passed a place where I laughed and had dinner with him. This is how grief comes to us in waves that crest, break over, and recede like the colors in your vases.

    1. I am sorry to hear of Bill’s passing and can only imagine the impact that has had on his family. Thank you for sharing your experience and story with us for this project and your kind words. I hope your week is off to a good start. If you have not yet subscribed to our newsletter, please feel free to do so to keep up to date about this project here:

      I hope you have a great week ahead, and so does Corey!

  3. I want to send healing energy to everything in existence. May we all have more and more moments where we stop, breathe and just let go of everything that doesn’t matter.

    Thanks again more than I can say for all You offer!!! ❤️❤️❤️You rock!!!

  4. I want to send healing energy to all who need it. May the little things in life become the most important. Like a beautiful sunrise or sunset, a smile, a hug (when we can) or saying I Love You.

  5. I would like to express hope for the healing of the human race. Somehow flags and borders and toilet paper have become more important than the human soul. We are all just beginning to understand the power of physical social distancing in controlling this pandemic, but in truth, most of us have been practicing a social distancing of the heart for years. Stay well.

  6. My family used to be so close. We were always together and always involved in each other’s lives. I found my path taking me abroad as did my siblings and now our family is spread out wide and far apart , and although the technology has made it seem easier to connect and talk frequently, yet I find myself grieving their presence in mine and my children’s lives everyday. Birthdays, small and big. Family holidays. Not having them in our day to day lives always gives me pain. I will still work towards finding a way to bridge the gap but this year I decided that the pain of missing them need not always be so loud all the time. I need to cherish what time we do have together and then relish the anticipation till we meet again; instead of thinking always of the pain of separation, I will focus on the joy of meeting again. I would like to Heal my heat, to put into this vase my love and appreciation of my family and to let go of the pain and longing.

  7. I love the concept of this project! Thank you so much for sharing. Just thinking about the opportunity to share and release some stress and fears makes me teary…I would like to add my brother’s name to the project, Tony. I love all of my family dearly and thought about just saying Family, but Tony is currently struggling with cancer. He is my younger brother but I have always looked up to him.

  8. My Mom and Dad and my husband’s Dad. They are all gone and we’d like to remember how great they were without so much pain please. Also, since my mother-in-law is the last parent, I want to send her strength. It’s tough being alone.

    1. thank you for your submission. I hope you, your husband, and your mother-in-law are all keeping well, Zen.
