A click between two artists is not unusual, but a lifelong artistic collaboration coupled with a deep friendship is rare. This came about between myself, Sheri, a clay and assemblage artist and Jan Greenwald, a man who is a master at wood carving and turning. We both choose to create unique, usually outside the "norm" pieces. I make eclectic fringe-items from clay and Jan turns odd and rotted wood into unique masterpieces. When we collaborate, even we don't really know what will happen.

She retreats inward to the cave beyond the veil. Tucked into a familiar hollowed out place, she is protected from the outer wars. In this place of solitude she is washed clean and regains her strength. Two ancient seashells, honed by time-out-of-mind, form the vessel through which healing waters pour.

Seeking escape from pain, young Mermaid dives deep into watery realms. In a shallow cave she rests and questions the reason of all that has passed and all that is to be.
Old Fish comes to her in a dream and brings her visions of his many travels. She awakens with a larger view of her experience, and moves forward, a little kinder from the embrace.

When the big waters recede, an abundance of life is held in the small pods of great rocks, it is time to explore and play. Mermaid rests in the tide pool, her fingers entwine playfully with her little octopus companion. Her contentment has no words.
