Hieroglyphs of the Heart

It’s always nice to inspire others, especially good friends! Here is a piece created by Cynthia Spencer, an incredible artist and person. She had a great show in Portland last fall that featured several works incorporating wire and paper. I feel lucky to own one of her early trials into this combination. Makes me want to work again in ceramics….. Maybe when I get more space!

This piece completed for a show at Guardino Gallery, Portland in October 2012. I blame my friend Gale Everett for getting me interested in using wire and paper as an expressive means. After doing a workshop with her all I wanted to do was make vessels with  which I could use this technique. So different than glazing chemistry and cooking.

The little pieces in the bottom are small porcelain wishbones. This piece is 16 x 16 x 6″ – $500.
