JOURNEY VESSEL - A SPIRIT GUIDE

Inspired by the dream journey of the western shamans, the vessels are maps for one's journey through the spirit worlds. It is a point of meditation, where one begins and ends their psychic journey.

Raku-fired works are taken out of the fire as they are glowing hot and then covered with burning wood shavings, papers and grasses. The works are trapped in fire, smoke and ash producing the volcanic black and metallic crackled glazed surfaces.

The Journey Vessel

reaches for harmony of space, form and function. As a ritual vessel

its shapes and textures create an ancient image of the universal balance of order and chaos.

It represents the eternal self and the spirit's path through the darkness and light of the metaphysical world.

It is where the seeker intends to find self knowledge and new beginnings.
