Gordon pointed out to me last night that there are so many new readers on the blog now, and some of you may not know what I do. This is what funds the little extras for the seven fur kids and the humans. I sculpt porcelain ornaments and brooches.
My first original designs debuted in 1996. My Nature's Angels concept is that there are angels all around us, representatives of God.
So I started sculpting designs based on leaves and their related blooms or fruit.
Over the years, as I have been exposed to and have absorbed elements from different cultures, my appreciation has grown for the heart as a universal design element.
Scandinavian hearts decorate at Christmas. Hearts for Mother's Day, for weddings, for special little gifts of thoughtfulness. The heart shape can represent a full spectrum of emotion from friendship to deep love.
