The duality of these pieces speak to my Fire & Water series. I am using these elements as a catalyst in the aging process of the mulberry fiber. I am intrigued at how historically we tend to always lean toward either fire or water during our rituals and celebrations - Relying on nature to bring spirit into the moment.
Water〰️These pieces are made with mulberry fiber, soil, crackle, gold foil and acrylic. The texture is created by mixing large amounts of water into each element.
