Bounce light from vase of "Love" onto vase of "Long Good Life"




Glossy glazed ceramics placed in the sun light glisten and bounce reflections upon all that surrounds them. Like a gossy glaze the River Siletz waters, rippled by a breeze glowing with sunlight, bounce a light show on the river's banks. Looking at the river inspires a new vase in my most precious most wonderful thing series. This inspiration is based on science as well as emotion. Ceramic glaze is a glass and glass is a liquid like water according to physicists. The eternal ever lasting connection between what we observe outdoors and the characteristics of ceramics reminds me of humane life. So I painted a painting of the vase of "Long Good Life" symbolized by a surrealistic vase on a river bank.
One granddaughter made this vase about what is most precious to her - love. I'll focus on the appeal of expressing the wonderment I felt as a child.

I want to make a ceramic vase from the two ideas I have from the High Lama.

I met the High Lama of Tibet, who grew up with the Dahli Lama. He said more than anything he wanted a long good life for himself and his monks. And the message we asked him for to carry to the United States was "to have a good heart." This meeting was arranged by our guide for a Portland Community College tour of mystical Tibet in 2002.

I could make a ceramic vase with people in it. A man and a woman enjoying their golden years hand in hand jumping for joy into the river of life.
