This vessel examines the theme of mending.
“you begin by loving your thread”
. . . and these explore community
Last year I was invited by the Jewish Women Artists’ Circle to study the theme of community. Eighteen of us participated.
For my project I chose to focus on community practices — Jewish, Sufi, and my own, Quaker faith tradition.
My vessels depicts the boundary between the inner experience and the outer practice. I chose to make these boundaries delicate and permeable. It is a good thing to learn from one another.
I wrote these words on the walls of one of the vessel:
i said: What about my passion?
i said: What about my heart?
i said: Pain and sorrow.
Rumi, a 13th century poet and Sufi mystic
