Art in a Small Space - Bare Your Walls - Open Call

I’m not living with a lot of walls these days.

I call this my Moon Bowl. I carved it out of alabaster and left the rough edge at the top. When the light shines from behind, you can see within the stone. When it comes from above, it shines through the hole, into the bowl, and out into the room.

 

 

This angel is unglazed clay. One family in Mexico creates these distinctive creatures which draw on Catholic as well as Indigeno imagery. My angel, which I keep beside my bed, holds a baby goat and plays the guitar.

 

 

Somebody pays minute attention to tiny things and etches exquisite lines. The artist’s signature is so small and faint, it makes me wonder if he or she is also tiny.

 

 

 Ukiyo- e is the Japanese method of making woodblock prints. Once each woodblock of a single color has been carved and printed, the artist must align the next block so the final prints are registered properly. This process takes time and great care, and results in an extremely limited edition. I made this one of my son thirteen years ago.

 

 

Hanging outdoors is a copper heart-shaped leaf fashioned for me by my friend Deby Harvey. She put the title in a note entwined in it – “My ragged heart is fresh and fearless.” You can see her artwork at  http://www.debyharvey.com/.

I can look at those things a lot, AHP. I touch my moon bowl every time I walk by it. Thank you.

Kimberly, thanks for visiting my space. That little angel makes me feel tender, which is a good thing.
