The Breadknife, Warrumbungle National Park-----Alan Wigginton

‘The Breadknife’, Warrumbungle National Park, Australia

 

 

Our extraordinary planet is truly blessed with many fascinating locations of natural power and visual intrigue filled with earthly empowerment and uplifting terrains.

Sacred sites are typically parts of the natural landscape such as rocky outcrops, hills, springs, caves, trees, ridges, gorges and mountains. They are frequently in remote and secluded locations with distinctive features and appearance, sometimes highlighted by monoliths, pinnacles, geometry, light, water and other unique aspects. They serve as a focal point for ceremonies, celebration, worship, pilgrimage, contemplation and seeking blessings. Sacred landscapes tend to have an otherworldly visage and create a sense of timelessness and detachment which can assist in raising a visitors consciousness.

While on a month long Yatra (pilgrimage) through Maharashtra, we decided to visit the Trimbakeshwar temple, which was in proximity to the Lord Rama caves of Nashik. As we drew closer to our destination, the terrain began to reveal a more distinctive and unusual appearance and I was feeling a growing feeling of anticipation. Upon arrival it was immediately obvious when I saw the commanding crescent ridge of Brahmagiri Mountain which was a spectacular backdrop to the temple.

My travelling companion and myself were instantly transfixed by its vibrational power and beauty and we were instantly drawn towards it and immediately embarked on our unplanned journey to its summit.

 

Cascading water down the Brahmagiri steps in the rain

For the remainder of the day we climbed the 750 steps carved into the stone ridge that ascended to the peak without any feeling of fatigue while imbibing the enlivened spirit of the mountain. The chance discovery of the meditation cave of Saint Gahaninath and seeing the source of the Holy Godavari River was the highlight. The most rewarding discoveries are usually the unexpected ones.

Black and white ceramic bowls – Mataichi Suzuki

 

Japanese cuisine always guarantees a collection of appealing food, served with artful preparation, while being presented in an environment of tasteful and relaxing decor. Simplicity with refined detail is a feature of the cuisine and is a reflection of the Zen aesthetic that permeates the Japanese arts. Gyoza, miso soup, yakitori, umeboshi/kudzu soup, shushi, genmai tea, soba noodles, tempura, teppanyaki, kukicha, always feature in my selections. Sometimes you are able to witness ceramic wares of high quality which adds to the enhancement of the experience.

Courtyard creations – enhanced earth

 

 

Ochre and jade green Moroccan courtyard

Moroccan courtyard – Ochre with jade green highlights

 

I’m looking at residential courtyards with the key emphasis being on prominent earth features using design elements like decorative rocks, stone paths, ceramic tiles, planters, earthy tones and stone walls. I am in the process of modifying a home design which has a central courtyard (a rarity these days) that has close proximity to a laundry and bathroom. This  isn’t ideal from a Feng Shui perspective, due to the running water depleting the Earth, which can be disruptive to the whole balance as this element is crucial to harmonizing all the elements.. This can be remedied by fortifying the instrinsic Earth element of the middle courtyard and avoiding the presence of fountains and other water features and cooling colours. In addtion, as wood attacks earth (5 Element Theory), large trees, wood decking.and other decorative elements using wood will need to be kept to a minimum. When combined with fire features like a toro stone lantern, red decor aspects and fire pits, this will enhance the Earth element and help regenerate it. The addition of metal with the fire also supports the energy flow of the earth (5 Element Theory)

Traditional Japanese courtyards favor the presemce of large rock features and stone, emphasised by the inclusion of open spaces using gravel, sand and moss (which has a milder growth aspect then the use of larger trees). The main courtyard entrance sometimes used a rounded moon doorway (Mon (門) threshold) becauses like the tortoise, the combination of the curve with a straight line was a symbol of heaven and earth and encouraged the movement of chi.. Arched doorways also attract an enhanced chi flow.

—-“indeed this substance, with its precious humility becomes, through its indestructibility, the most faithful bearer of man’s message. As far back as one goes in time, the works of humanity, from prehistoric times, have reached us not through stone which crumbles and wears away, or through metal which oxidizes and becomes like powder, but through slabs of pottery, the writing on which is as clear today as it was under the stiletto of the scribe who traced it.”  …..  Bernard Leach

Terracotta Dining Collection and Ceramic Vases by FAINA

Design by Victoria Yakusha – The most obvious visual reference to terracotta in the collection is the ZTISTA table, which in Ukrainian means ‘made of dough’. Yakusha explains her particular inspiration as “the spontaneous and naïve designs of a dinner table shaped by hand with a technique, that our ancestors used to create a hut-hut.” The base resembles a hand-made hunk of clay, complete with irregular perforations, though it is in fact made from steel, flax rubber, biopolymer, and cellulose.

Yunnan Holy Gemu Mountain Goddess

 

Gemu Mountain Goddess in the distance — Yugu Lake, Yunnan

Elevation – 37o metres

 

The lush Yunnan province, in the far eastern foothills of the Himalayas, is said to have as much flowering plant diversity as the rest of the Northern Hemisphere put together. The camellia is the floral emblem of the province, holding the same place in the hearts of its people as the kumquat and peach fruits do in other parts of China. The sacred Gemu Mountain graces the edge of the pristine, deep azure blue Lugu Lake (also known as the Mother Lake} and serenely stretching along its sierra in the form of a woman in a sublime respose, resides a mountain Deity on her lofty throne. This was recognized by the ancient Tibetan tribes of the Mosuos as a good omen for the region and especially because of their matrilineal traditon, they were encouraged to adopt this secluded location for settlement.

To this day in this remote utopian encleve, they still hold annual celebrations for the remarkable Gemu Mountain Goddess on the seventh moon of the lunar calender, with music, dancing and circumnabulations of the mountain, to honour her as their protectress and venerate her as a feminine fertility symbol and for a healthy harvests of their crops. Their deep reverence being transported from a diistant past that reaches into times where the forces of nature ruled their instinctive perception and behaviour.

Suiseki gazing stones art

 

Han Jiang river stone

 

Gongshi belongs to the Chinese tradition of venerating beautiful stones, which has existed since the Neolithic era, when prized geological specimens were placed into tombs as offerings. Chinese writers composed essays praising the natural qualities of these gazing stones, especially if they were represenative of mythological creatures like dragons, spiritual concepts,  prominent mountains or had a captivating aesthetic. They are also known as Lingbi Stones and Scholar Rocks and have been a favorite with collectors since ancient times. Some were revered if they conjured imagery of immortals and sages or the remote mountain grottoes and caves where they liked to dwell. The Japanese called these stones Shuiseki, which meant Water and Stone and they were used for interior decoration and in courtyards and gardens.

The Rinzai Zen monks from Kyoto wrote in 1474 that the contemplation of evocotive stones allows you to look upon grand vistas without travelling far, feel grounded and experience cleansing and purification of the heart. It was recognized as being good for enriching the spirit and prolonging happiness. Generally, shiseki stones are formed naturally or with a minimal amount of manipulation.

“I’d rather risk an ugly surprise then rely on things I know I can do.”

 

 

Rodin’s ‘Monument to Balzac’ was originally rejected by the critics in Paris. This overly innovative monument caused such an outrage when it was unveiled in 1898 that the commission was cancelled. Rodin never saw his monument cast in bronze. Balzac is depicted in a monks habit, which he liked to wear as a dressing gown when he was writing. The contours were diffused to create a blurred figure alluding to an impressionist style and a dishevelled appearance was favoured but the unmistakable depth of spirit was overlooked by the superficial critiques.

Relief at Lobby of the Daily Express-

Art Deco relief mural by Ronald Atkinson

Lobby, (former) Daily Express Building, London

 

The Art Deco movement was championed in 1925 as a mission to embrace modernism, decorativism and globalism into a collective creative force and harness the artistic talent that had converged on Paris after WW1. A comparable influential trajectory had occured in 1919 when Walter Gropius established the Bauhaus School with the bold objective of merging architecture, sculpture and painting into a single creative expression to develop a utopian craft guild of artists.

The International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts (which was the genesis of the term Art Deco) became the focus for this style upheaval and a new design aesthetic emerged replete with references to fashion, finesse, glamour and elegance. The streamlined designs introduced in this era inspired sleeker lines which also appeared in architecture and fashion. According to Erte, Art Deco became a “confluence of Cubism and Art Nouveau.” The unpredictable Cubist abstractions and their fluid perspective had a more refined fusion which became tempered by the harmonious undulations of nature. Erte’s art defined an era of sophistication and luxury combined with a sublime balance and flambouyant fashion exploration to promote a contemporary freedom of expression. Jean Dupas was also one of the adventurous designer artists in the 30s with his fascinating synthesis of Surrrealism, Art Nouveau, Neo Classical and Art Deco. It was an unparralled era for the integration of so many new Art movements into a formidable innovative design front.

YUGEN SERIES – NO. 1  – Beverly Morrison

 

In Japanese, Yugen means having a profound awareness of the universe that triggers an emotional response.

‘When I started creating these pieces, “The Universe Speaks” was a phase that kept repeating in my head. Every piece is unique, yet attempting to convey the birth, death and energy of the cosmos…..the divine spark.”

 

 

 

‘Sora’ – Beverly Morrison

In Japanese, Kū or Sora, most often translated as “Void”, but can also mean “sky” or “heaven”. Representing those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy. The word seemed to fit the vision I had when sculpting this piece. I was staring down into a pond, watching the shadows above me being cast down onto the waters surface. The shadows of the tree danced with life, fueled by the wind around me, yet reflected a void. Sora represents life in the stillness of the void.

Beverly Morrison--Moon ceramic sculpture

Beverly Morrison — ‘Moon’

H21.5 inches

“Moon” is about the interconnection of harmony and discord. The sculpture was created with two distinct clay bodies that have differing shrinkage rates. During the firing process they meld together, yet pull apart all at the same time creating cracks and imperfections in a harmonic way.

 

‘Rain’ – Beverly Morrison, LA

H 14” x W 19” x D 13” in

 

” Back in 2012 I went on a ceramics tour in Japan. I had the pleasure to be introduced to the work of Hiroshi Senju, a contemporary Japanese painter best known for his large-scale monochromatic depictions of waterfalls. This piece is dedicated to his work.”

ADIRE I--stoneware-Malene Barnett

‘ADIRE I’ — Malene Barnett

stoneware sculpture

Redemption critiques the relationship between social relevance and inequality. Every piece, though built by hand in Brooklyn, pays homage to the traditional hand-building techniques found in the Yorubaland region of south-western Nigeria. Using the Gele-headwrap as a signifier, Malene blends her two-year-study of the slab building technique with an enquiry into the uncertainties of life to construct sculptures in rippling layers of clay. She gathers inspiration for her twisted sculptures from the unpredictable obstacles we encounter in life. The bold, organic patterns are etched freehand using underglazes and wax to reference the dye resist technique used in Adire textiles.

‘Kintsugi’  —  Alyse Stone

2019

 

  A tribute to black women from many years past. Kintsugi is the Japanese practice of repairing broken ceramics with gold. The black texture is designed to be reminiscent of the system of slavery. The sculpture stands tall, as the colors create a stark, visual contrast showcasing the elegance, despite the obstacles. This piece is made with clay and metal patina.

Yolande Milan Batteau

 

Batteau studied philosophy and painting at the Sorbonne in Paris, San Francisco Art Institute, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Having traveled the world early in her career, Batteau has a strong affinity for a wide range of cultures and their arts. Many of the techniques, motifs and materials she has fallen in love with on her travels manifest in her artwork. Belgian simplicity, French decadence, African complexity, Japanese refinement, and American bravado are all equally beloved, alongside a host of more niche, less easily-definable aesthetics.

‘Distancer Pursuer’ – Liz Collins

Mullin Art Gallery

Tactile and energetic, Collins’ large-scale wall works recall the geometric abstract weavings of the Bauhaus, and the “retinal titillations” of Op-art painting. As always, Collins queers these influences to create an erotically charged language of hot color and frenetic pattern. “When I think about my work related to Maximalism,” she shares, “it makes sense in relation to the dualities I’m preoccupied with like pleasure and pain, chaos and order, restraint and release – extremes that are interdependent.” Tightly woven areas are juxtaposed with luxurious swaths of loose, flowing threads, and allusions to the body erupt amidst the stricture of grids.

 

Liz Collins-Mullin Art Gallery-at-Occidental College-in-Los-Angeles,-CA

Liz Collins – Mullin Art Gallery, Occidental College, LA, CA

The maximalist impulse is subversive by nature; excessive and decadent. Not only does it flout bourgeois notions of taste ala “less is more”, but it also flagrantly reconfigures them. Jean Genet brilliantly summed this up in The Thief’s Journal when he wrote: “To achieve harmony in bad taste is the height of elegance.” With their electric, bombastic hues and dizzying, graphic patterns, Liz Collins textile works exemplify such harmony.

Mount Kailash circumambulation

 

As an ancient site of pilgrimage, Mt. Kailash is a great mass of snow capped black rock soaring to over 23,000 feet with a rounded peak. The holy mountain of Kailash has the unique distinction of being one of the world’s most venerated destinations while at the same time being the least visited. The supremely sacred site of four religions and billions of people, Mt. Kailash is the most revered of places for Buddhists from around the world. To Hindus, Kailash is the abode of Shiva and nearby Mansarowar Lake, is the soul of Brahma. Tibetans refer to Mt Kailash as Kang Rimpoche (meaning “Precious Mountain”) while the followers of Bon-Po, the ancient pre-Buddhist shamanistic religion of Tibet, worship Kailash as the soul of Tibet. Even Guru Nanak, the first Guru of the Sikhs, is reputed to have visited this spot during his ‘Udasis’. The Jains worship it as Mt Ashtapada, the peak from which the religion’s founder, Rishabanatha, achieved spiritual liberation.

Walking around the mountain (clockwise for the Buddhists, counter-clockwise for Bon adherents) is known as a Kora,Yatra or Parikrama, and normally takes three days. However, Tibetans often complete this in a day taking around 14 hours.   This 52.3 mile journey is easier for Tibetans due to their instrinsic acclimatation to high altitudes. The ambience is so charged in these locations that you can tap into extra reserves of energy.  At the Drolma La Pass you will climb up to a heady 5,653 meters.

Alluring terracotta vessels and sculptures

 

sculpture of a female minstral

Tanagara sculpture of a female minstral

 

The terracotta figures from the ancient city of Tanagra in Boetoia, central Greece, represent some of the finest examples of early sculptures dating back to 300 BC.  Tanagra also became synonymous for a young woman, who was remarkable for her grace and finesse, due to the beauty of the aesthetics of their statuary at the time.

In most ancient cultures, Terracotta (Italian translation — ‘baked earth’) was featured prominently for utilitarian cooking wares, figures of worship and decoration, structural forms, planters, large storage amphora, wine vessels and a myriad of other uses. Its terrestial and earthy ochre hues adds to its attractivness along with its durability and versatility.

The terracotta warmth carries its special appeal to this day and is still embraced by artists, designers and consumers.

“I tried to design a modest object that would let the beauty of the terracotta stand out.” “Every time someone squeezes an orange in my home, its flavour lingers in the air for some minutes. The properties of unglazed terracotta led me to design a squeezer that absorbs and slowly releases the orange flavour,”

Garnish Island garden

Garnish Island garden, Ireland

 

A captivating array of gardens of the conceptual, classical, abstract, contemporary, wild, natrural and sculptured designs. When the pink carnellia’s start to bloom on my balcony and the magnolia and jasmine begin to bud, I know that spring is imminient and will soon make another grand entrance. The life affirming visuals and fragrances of renewal, revival  and growth will be warmly embraced this year.

 

Pink carnellias on my balcony.

In Japan the camellia flower is known as ‘Tsubaki’ (early Spring) and symbolizes the divine, probably because of its exquisite lotus appearance. It is often used in religious and sacred ceremonies and is known as the ‘rose of winter’.
