floral Wyandot 02

floral Wyandot form

again an ancient form of my ancestors using floral beadwork pattern-like design

on the blackened surface, similar to grey black buckskin

the flowers are of the great tree of the sky realm of our stories

where every flower is unique and individual

    Your pottery is incredible. How beautiful to see floral patterns on pottery. I’ve only seen geometric on pottery. Thanks for sharing. VS

  2. thanks Vida!
    its something that sort of evolved FROM the geometric patterns
    and ALSO being also fascinated with old floral patterns in quill and beads on black buckskin.
    these have been very fun pieces to do, since each flower is totally different . There’s that challenge of taking a tool and spontaneously free-hand invent a design immediately on the softer clay surface.

    there that bit of risk taking to “create-as-you-go” making me sharpened and alert which to me seems a prerequisite for living a truly attentive and joyful life.
