Ecclesiasticus said so

How interesting … words that came across my way, today, by way of Ecclesiasticus – “He has placed before you fire and water; stretch out your hand for whichever you choose.”

I have been sensing too much “water” energy in my life recently.  Time to take up the fire. A project is overdue to move forward.

sculpture: vessel for the holy spirit

finally!  it’s been a long winter for me but i took the “opportunity” to finish this sculpture – just in time for pentecost.  This is made of copper wire and steel and is about 11.5″ square by 3′ tall.   I’m really happy about this piece…i had the idea in mind for a long time but couldn’t decide how to start the copper knitting.  once i got started, it came together just as i’d imagined.  hope you like it.  come visit to see it (and others) in person!
