I thought a totem pole would offer the best frame work for my interpretation of Dylan Thomas’s poem ‘The Green Fuse’ - a story board where many different visions could appear next to each other.
During my shamanic journeys I often encounter whales; in the trees, in the sky – I travel inside them and just like the Cheshire cat in Alice in Wonderland they often leave bits of them selves trailing behind when they disappear. So my whales just had to be included – and here they are, singing;
in the kelp forest,
- The hand is meant to be the hand of Gaia, the Earth Goddess, giving and taking life.
The boxes are slab built and smoke fired. I made a little sculpture of a frog which I cast and then press moulded.
