small tales

a Lightworks blog

There’s a story woven around the origination of every piece of artwork; here are some small tales about the ongoing journey of their creation…

the book of answers, my I Ching based blog, is here.

CURRENT MOON

    the making of the dream temple


    Here's a time-lapse from some years ago, included here since I didn't have a blog then & still work in the same way, creatively manifesting my dreams where possible.

    I believe that messages from the Divine, when they are gifted to us, require a response: to be honoured and manifested. If we do this, we open up a free-flowing dialogue which continues to deepen the more we engage with it.
    A couple of years ago, I had a meaningful dream with which I followed this process by writing a song about it.
    It only occured to me reccently that I could take this further by actually creating the beautiful object which was the focus of it.
    After doing this, I again affirmed my desire to learn from my dreams and that night dreamed I was in a shop which sold ancient relics, hundreds or even thousands of years old.
    I was drawn to one, which was a figure inside a clay tube open at the top. The figure was obviously beautifully carved, but could never be properly seen as it was hidden within the non-removable casing.
    Although it was almost irresistably tantalising not to be able to see the figure, the meaning was clear: this was a heart-felt offering to the Ancestors which was meant to be hidden, with all the beauty on the inside.
    I wanted to honour this dream by creating this ancestral offering myself, and decided to time-lapse the process on the night of the winter solstice.
