Here is Wild Woman and this time she is holding a vertebra. Her message to all women is to have a backbone and stand up for yourself and for your community.
This backbone was found in the carcass of a young cougar at the edge of high tide.
I think the symbolism is interesting.
The clay, like the woman, is natural.
Wild Woman shows the joy of nesting.
This nest was found in a downed tree after a storm. It was strong and remained intact even after the tree fell. Build a strong nest.
We had to clear away the tree before we could get the RV out and back onto the logging road.
Raven Woman The raven and the Western Red Cedar live in harmony. Raven Woman has actual red cedar leaf impressions and her hair is strips of red cedar bark. The bark and leaves came from a natural fallen tree and the feather was found by that tree.
Leaf Woman She's happy living in the fallen leaves and she nourishes the soil under the trees. Her hair is strands of arbutus berries. Actual leaf impressions were made in the wet clay. After the first firing, underglazes were washed and painted on then it was fired to 2100F. Suitable for outdoor or indoors.
