Divine nudges are leading to new work created within a group of female sculptors for exhibition in 2021.

After days of brainstorming, we gathered online in meetings to share our experiences and to begin a discussion of like themes running through our individual projects. We are creating a group of large-scale, uplifting figures as well as smaller related pieces. For my own figure, I will be using found materials to again create upcycled beauty; I loved making ONE with rubbish and prompts from the Divine. A bozzetto is still being enlarged and developed as a departure point for a ‘stained glass’ artwork. It will also be comprised of upcycled materials. Many months ago, the bozzetto was a quick, joyful note about the process of building trust from or in broken places: the beauty of waiting to understand another’s contribution, and the vulnerability experienced in making one’s own offerings. I feel that building trust is a process greatly attended by the Divine, the Great Recycler of any mess handed over in the right spirit, and I look forward to seeing what emerges from our group now.

Two more areas to resolve before creating the final prototype…
Transforming the features.
Still refining the blossoms…100% found rubbish.
Seeking a ‘mandorla’ pose for an angel’s hands. May you know that you are never alone.
