Out my Windo I've seen the most amazing creatures; I one day spied a crazy-eyed rabbit, on four wheels, moving fast, cape and ribbons flying. She had no time to talk, but placed in my mind, at no charge, a river of images and stories. A gift she said, but in order to keep the river flowing these visions must be shared.

Of Earth & Water

There is story in the piece of wood lying twisted and forgotten along the shore. It holds within its layer-upon-layer an ancient collective memory that lives true in all of us. It might speak of mother-wisdom, or the old healer, or it might tell a story from a time-out-of-mind place where creatures crawled out of the sea and took their first breath of air.

I never know what will come to life when first I touch that piece of wood, but in time it speaks to me of the earth and water from whence it came. I try to honor that call from the depths, allowing it –as deftly as I'm able– into expression.

Ms Joanie Goes Shopping~

This piece of driftwood became a crazy rabbit flying by on wheels. A busy eccentric, she is on a mission. Her eyesight is poor so if you're lucky enough to see her coming, give wide berth.  Dedicated to my dear friend, Joan Gast, who flew from this earth many years ago… Oh the stories!

From wheels to ear-tips she stands 15".

Wizardry
The protocal for summoning your wizard for a touch of magic can prove a bit tricky: 1) State clearly your desire. 2) Make the call only when you are absolutely sure.  3) Wait for him to arrive on the wind in his own given time. 4) Serve a spread of fresh bread, seasonal fruit, cheese and good red wine–no cheap stuff. 5) After his long pipe comes out and the first smoke ring encircles the room try hard to remember what is was you wanted.  13" nfs

Spirits of Wood & Water - Gathering at the Crossroads

Decisions must be made as we find ourselves at the crossroad; what baggage to leave behind and what to embrace as we pack our small suitcase.  We travel light now, with a bouyancy remembered from childhood.

In this series feminine faces appear in the wood. Each has a message to impart. each embodies a quality necessary for the new world order. The chosen path shines clear now, full of light sparks and purpose of step.

The sizes run from 8" to 15" h. The price is $60 each (unless otherwise indicated) plus shipping. If you have any questions or would like to make a purchase please contact Sheri by clicking on this link.
