Without a lot of religious traditions, it is curious that I have been drawn to spiritual things: tankas from Nepal, statues of Gods from Greece, Russian icons. Perhaps it is due to the rich tradition of religious art or perhaps it is some unmet need. I found this broken Thai plaque and it was my hope to give it a home. I call this one Samara or "continuous flow". The wheel being the symbol of cycles. I can only imagine that some might find spiritual references in my work to be insulting and yet, if intent is what finally matters, my intent is only to salvage what is old or broken and redeem them into something new and beautiful. The year is ending and a new one is just around the corner. It is my hope for a new & beautiful year for everyone.
