The Vase of Attraction – Winter 2019

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce everyone to my next art project ‘The Vase of Attraction’. The best part of the project is that you can also participate. Yes. You!

I have been contemplating how I might integrate my spiritual practice into my artistic process and how that might involve and possibly help others with creating abundance. After contemplating this for sometime, I have come up with the concept for ‘The Vase of Attraction’.

My concept for this piece is to allow the process of raku and the flames of the reduction process to act as a powerful intention to bring positive change for all who to choose to participate in this process collectively.

Fresh off the potter’s wheel.

You may be wondering how you can participate in this process? The answer is simple. I am asking you to share one of the following in the written words of your choice in the comments below:

  • What you would like to attract for 2020. What are your hopes and dreams for the upcoming year? This could be anything from more love, to new opportunities, personal growth or more joy.
  • Globally, what positive changes you would like to see in our world. This could be anything from peace, prosperity, or any type of universal global healing.

I only ask that you keep all comments positive, non political and respectful. I look forward to your submissions in the comments below.

  3. Could you catch us with the joy of living? And that from one of your works, it continues to spread and shine on the world!
    Before going to the world (I know I’m still exaggerating), the work will embellish the heart and life of those who cross it 🙂
    Ok, it’s a little abstract, the joy of living.
    It’s a child’s laugh
    An adult smile
    A light we love so much to see
    A vase that amazes us 🙂 and you do it very well.

    1. You are very kind and sweet and your comment, though exaggerated has certainly embellished my heart this morning! The joy of living is the most important part of life to keep sight of 😉 Thank you for such a beautiful reminder!

    1. Incredibly beautiful things to manifest for a wonderful year! Thank you for your contribution to this project! So special to have you participate!

  4. For 2020, I would like to see more of an effort toward world peace. Also, I would like to see a concerted effort to care and protect Mother Earth.

    friend, a sincere smile
    can make for a joyous day
    it’s coming your way

    🤗

    1. I am with you on both of those efforts! I love that you are thinking about the world and helping to heal it. That is often on my mind.

      Your comments always help make my days more joyous! I noticed that you decided to get the book and the little vase. You will need to tell me about the colours you like 😉

      Hope your weekend was full of joy and good things 😉

      1. I’m so glad you enjoyed my comments. Yes, I really wanted the book from the beginning but trying to stay within my budget. I love copper and blues – actually I love all colors.

        Our weekend was peaceful even though we both are a bit under the weather. I feel much better today, but my hubby is still struggling with a cold. This too shall pass.

      2. I am sorry to hear that you are both under the weather. Colds this time of year can be brutal with all the shifting temperatures.

        I really appreciate that you got the book and I will include a little something special with yours, as a thank you for all your encouragement!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful wish for the world Tricia. I am right there with you in wishing for those things! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

  5. As you know, I live in the Deep South, USA. And here in the South— especially in the rural South, but not uncommon in the cities— folks are mannerly. There is a hierarchy to holding doors open. Younger folks refer to their elders as, Sir and Ma’am. People make eye contact as they pass one another on the street. They may even smile, nod, and say, “Hey.” Often times a cashier will finish a transaction with “Have a good one” or “Have a blessed day.”

    I take these things for granted but I know they make a difference in day-to-day life.

    For the past several weeks we’ve been traveling abroad and I am here to tell you things are not as they are in the South. And it shows in the faces of folks we pass or otherwise interact with. They behave as if other humans are just obstacles in their paths. I can’t help but wonder if we all wouldn’t be better off adopting some Southern mannerisms.

    And so— may I suggest a few baby steps toward loftier wishes? When you pass someone on the street, look at them and smile. Hold the door for an old lady carrying her basket, or a young women with a child in tow. Step aside when you see a man with a cane approach. If you see a couple looking perplexed and out of place at an airport or train station, ask if they need help. Let someone turn into traffic in front of you. Slow down for the bicyclist.

    Treat others as you would like to be treated. What have we got to lose?
