Window Treatment from Clay and Beads

I made this from trinkets I made with clay. Then, I strung them with some beads and crocheted a valance to pull it all together. The cedar stick was found in the woods at Sweethome Retreat in Tennessee.

Fairy House from Clay

This ceramic fairy house was modeled from red clay. The video shows all sides as it rotates on the turntable. The photo shows the glazed piece before it was fired.

Fairy Stacked Houses

I love anything to do with fairies. Here is a set of fairy houses I made from clay. The four pieces stack on top of one another to form a fairy condo of sorts.

Mugs and Jugs

I unloaded the kiln today and here are the results of the low-fire glaze application. I think my 4" x 12" template is a bit large for mugs that are going low-fire. The clay shrinks more at a higher temperature.

To refresh your memory, here is what they looked like (minus the high-fire mugs that are yet to be fired) before they were fired.

Pottery Studio at Sweethome Retreat

Crafters in the Sky Art Studio at Sweethome Retreat continues to grow. We have added more space for drying items and to hold pieces that are awaiting a glaze firing.

In the upper photo, there are 15 mugs from the bisque firing on Saturday morning. Those were glazed over the weekend and went back into the kiln today. Will show the results in a future post.

In the photo below, I have several bowls about ready for the bisque fire. My grandsons were creative last weekend; I have several treasures to fire for them this week.

Napkin Holder from Clay

I made this napkin holder and spoon rest for my daughter. It has a rustic look and resembles leather; but, it is made from red clay.

Fairy Tree Trinkets

For the past two years we have decorated the weeping peach tree (we call it the fairy tree) in our backyard with things that make a fairy wonderland that we call our Fairy Village. I'm so ready for spring to come so I can attach these newly crafted trinkets to the branches and invite the fairies to come and play. I also have some stained glass trinkets and clay ornaments that we've made that I'm eager to install.

Here are photos of the decorated fairy tree in past years:

Light Language Art on 22" Frame Drum

I am preparing this drum for the Nashville Star Knowledge Conference where I will be presenting a light language activation play-shop on Sept 18. We will be drumming for spiritual awakening in humanity.

The codes vary like the dialects of spoken language. They are spiritual or cosmic frequencies (sacred geometry) that give instructions to the DNA, body, emotions, etc. like what binary code does for a computer.

Sepia-toned Light Language Art Piece

This is a bit different--more pictorial--than the codes or symbols that I normally write in light language. I saw this one in my mind's eye before I actually started painting.

Typically, when I write symbols in light language, it is a form of automatic writing in which my hand moves of its own accord and I cannot predict what the next stroke of the pen will create. I know these symbols carry energy and information, but so far, I've not interpreted much of my own writing unless I'm giving a reading in light language. Other people have given interpretations about what it means to them.

I think the beauty of light language, like any other artistic expression, surpasses the logical mind and goes straight to the heart or soul of the one viewing it. Therefore it has limitless interpretations.

Light Language Art August 24, 2014

As I was filling in the background spaces on this one, I noticed different light language symbols forming. I have not seen many of them in my normal code writing. These felt mathematical, like I was opening up a new level of binary language. I still do not get interpretations for these codes, but they are fun to create.

Painting Abstracts and Inner Guidance

Beauty is not found in perfection. It is found in creating joy.

I usually paint abstracts by moving the brush and seeing what happens. I started this one using circle patterns and measuring with a ruler because that is what my inner guidance suggested. I felt so frustrated erasing and doing the lines again only to find that they were not exactly straight or equal in proportion.

I quit halfway through the sketch and went to watch a movie. I had to get off my feet—I'd been standing for more than an hour trying to “get it right.” I came back later and was going to put away the mess when my guidance suggested I draw the inner part of the circles free hand.

“The proportions will not be perfect,” I argued.


“They won’t be exact.”

“Do you want beauty and joy or perfection and frustration?”

No brainer. I put away the ruler and drew what came to me. I started relaxing and enjoying the process. Here is how it turned out. I call it "Pretty Imperfect."

More Light Language Art

This one has galactic code and a triple goddess symbols.

The sacred feminine pours her essence into the womb or challis of creation. The sacred masculine unites with her and drinks her amrita (divine nectar) and is set afire with love for her. This represents the divine marriage within each of us; we are made in the image of our creator that is both male and female.

Earth letting go of her old paradigm of God in a box, worship of money, and greedy business practices in order to unite with the cosmic understanding of oneness and birth a new paradigm of love and community.

Light Language Art

I've just published a book about light language. Along with it I've created some art that I would like to share.

Geometric shapes and gyres of light language . . .

Symbols or galactic codes ...

Four directions/elements ...

A new cosmic breed perhaps?

Healing the wounds of religion ...

Healing our ancestors ...

Working with the angelic kingdom ...

The five elements: Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and Spirit ...

Fairy Party

This summer I decorated an area of my yard and designated it as a fairy garden. I had some friends over for a fairy party and we dressed up and made merry. Here are a few photos of the fun we had.

My son sent me the musical piece below and asked if anyone could actually play it. I think only the fairies with fingers that move as fast as hummingbird wings would be able to play that song!

Painting of a Male Angel

Vickie and I have been painting again. She got an order for a commissioned work of a male angel so we decided that would be our theme for the week. Here is my completed piece.

There's just something irresistible about a man who meditates or does yoga. This male angel does both!
