One World, One Heart

ONE WORLD, ONE HEART


Photo

When I heard about the “One World One Heart” event, I thought, “What a great idea!” It sounded like a wonderful way to meet other art bloggers and to build connections with people I might never meet otherwise. And I loved the “Magic Carpet” theme: certainly, my computer and blog have become a sort of magic carpet that has taken me in directions I couldn’t have imagined a dozen years ago.

I have some other magic and almost-but-not-quite-magic carpets in my life that also whisk me away to interesting places. One is my sparkly, mosaicked car, B-dazle, the mechanical companion and moving sculpture that has been my workhorse for the past few years. B-dazle is a great icebreaker and has been the subject of innumerable questions from my fellow citizens.




I have other magic carpets that take me to fascinating places that B-dazle can’t; and one of the best is the magic carpet called “books.” My favorite is Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. His works included over 500 publications on topics ranging from life in middle America to life on other planets and in formats ranging from plays to poems to novels. He was a master of science fiction, and I found myself transported to another realm when I read classics of his like The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man and Fahrenheit 451.

Books have often inspired subjects for my art, so it seems appropriate that I make sculpted bookmarks to assist others as they ride their own literary magic carpets. I call these “Sacred Word Keepers,” and each is unique. The one pictured here has a silver locket hanging from the top that opens so you can place a picture inside. And, like all of my Word Keepers, she has an original stoneware clay face.


To win her as part of the “One World One Heart” event, make a comment in the comment box below this post before noon Eastern Standard Time on February 15th. If you don’t mind, you may include an email address or blog address in your comment through which I can reach you to obtain mailing information if you’re the winner. If you don’t want to leave contact information with your comment, just watch my blog on the evening of February 15th. At that time, I’ll declare the winner. You can email your mailing information to me then if you won the Word Keeper.

Please come back for my next blog post when I will give you a tour of my home, Woodloft, and tell you about my other work.
