These special jars have been an integral part of my creative and spiritual
process. Each jar is an individual, there will never be two exactly
I combine both traditional and contemporary techniques in construction
and firing. I then decorate the bear fetish as it dictates, each
one different and unique.
- The bear represents “strength of heart”, as in a mother protecting her
children and home, creating a safe place, staying in her center with courage
and balance. Porcupine represents “Faith, Trust, and Innocence”,
like a child who views the world with open eyes and heart, trusting oneself,
loving all it encompasses. Horse represents “wisdom and power”
acknowledging that we all have personal and spiritual power and the choice
to use it wisely.
