Idyllic

Gaia & Nirit : Pretty in Peace Fall 2009

Gaia, the Hebrew word for earth and Nirit for flower, these pieces are representative of the delicate symbiosis that exists between a mother and daughter. My grandmother's failing health has given me pause to consider and reconsider these relationships; hers and mine , my mother's and hers, and ultimately my mother's and mine.


Gaia (background) & Nirit : Pretty in Peace Fall 2009

I've used heavily oxidized and raw brass to symbolize the fusion of age and youth, stone and glass for fortitude and pulchritude and a large copper floral focal on Nirit for growth. Idyllically these would meld as nicely in life as they do in design and theory, but what fun would that be? Smiles.




Peace and love

Beautiful as always! I love how the two go together and can also stand alone, much like individuals in relationships.

that's supposed to say you inspired me to consider the mom-daughter connection more deeply. I'll be reflecting on this one :)
