Large Grandmother Tree number 1

Thank you Barbara!

Some of you may have seen earlier posts of my Grandmother Tree wall sculptures. The idea came to me when I saw a beautiful piece of driftwood and just knew I could convert it into a tree sculpture. A new series was created. Through the years, the trees have taken the form of tall standing sculptures, large Malaleuca Tree bark wall sculptures and various sized driftwood wall sculptures.

I just finished two Grandmother Trees. Grandmother Tree number 1 is 5” wide by 25” high and 4” deep. I’ve added a lotus pod, reindeer and other moss and a beautiful peacock feather along with the original stoneware clay face and driftwood.

Grandmother Tree Number 2

Grandmother Tree number 2 is 5”w x 12” high by 4”deep. an and also has a lotus pod, peacock feather, tree bark, driftwood and one of my original faces.

Below is the story I have given to my Grandmother Tree series:

Grandmother Tree”

The trees are alive! She wandered into the garden early one morning and she heard them speak to one another.. It was a language spoken on another another vibrational time frame. They spoke of healing with power and energy and of the relationship between energy and matter. She was drawn to an ancient Chinese Elm and as she leaned her body next to the base, somehow she felt immersed in the tree and felt herself slip into the tree..was one with the tree and knew that she was the tree.....

  2. Beautiful and also good luck. The peacock is considered to be a bird of protection and safe guarding. This bird is also valued as a protection for the psychic self. There has been lore that writes that to have a peacock feather within the home this helps to safe guard any of the energy in the environment. I'm sure that is why you included them in these beautiful pieces.

  3. Oh, so beautiful, I love the lichen and other naturals you added, so so lovely...just like your words for me today. Thank you Cheryl. xo

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My site has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.
