Focus on the Journey

A totem pole for your wall, this ceramic collage sculpture is made of stoneware shards created from nearly dry clay. The shards are covered with black slip, then carved in the sgraffito technique. The electric blue under glaze is inlaid after carving. The shards are fired to 2167 degrees F, then mounted to a poplar “stick”, with bumpers at the bottom to protect your wall.
  • Turtle – An old soul, protector, and story teller, the turtle totem teaches us to walk in peace.
  • Spiral – The spiral is the most used symbol in the world. It is used by virtually every culture in some manner. For most North American tribes it symbolizes the life force, one’s personal path, or the creative spirit.
  • Dancer – The dancer design is a self-portrait of me dancing for joy, celebrating and giving thanks for my own creative journey.
  • Frog – Often called the dreamer, the frog is generally associated with water, symbolizing cleansing and renewal.

Frog and turtle make their way in the world with determination while enjoying the scenery along the way. It’s a good message for all of us.
