Tactile Talismans 2021
This is a collection of individually hand formed and polished porcelain talismans, with silver highlights…
This collection is inspired by ancient artworks created by our ice age ancestors,, carved bones, natural stones, and the ingrained human instinct to decorate ourselves, and give our own symbolic and personal meanings to treasured belongings.
As with most of my recent collections – the pieces in this collection are designed to be minimal, yet to have an especially tactile combination of surfaces and materials.
They can be held and used as a form of worry bead or comforter, or they can be used as a focus for meditation, or of course – you can give them your own meanings as you choose your own personal talisman to connect with and wear.
Each porcelain nugget has been carefully and individually hand formed, shaped, twice fired for strength and for a beautiful, finished surface texture, and then polished. A couple have a clear glaze highlight, and most of them have delicate solid silver highlights. Each piece is then made into its final form, on a silver bangle, chain, or a handmade braided cord.
