The English Garden. The only thing I managed to finish last week. Sorry, but I worked about 62 hours, this is all I had time for.
The cabochon is the work of Leslee Giovale-Texeira, a lady of many talents, from wonderful Kailua, Hawaii. The lovely shades of sky and ocean come together in her ceramic work, all so full of life and light.
Her store on Etsy , Rare Earth Beads features cabochons, pendants, recycled glass beads, coconut beads,and many other wonderful things, and occasionally she has wonderful ceramic cabochons with a crackle glass glaze, one of which I purchased from her.
When you get something new and awesome, you don't always know what to do with it, right?
Well, I don't. So I took my sweet time and imagined what this rare piece of beauty would want to be surrounded by, what home can I make for it?
Then I thought of how it resembled a lake in a shaded green park, in an English garden, overgrown, but not forgotten,something mysterious, but light and serene.
And this is what came of it. Imagine the forest floor beneath your feet as you walk through this almost-jungle, a maze of light green with shifting shadows and dew drops...
By the time I was done with it, it also started to remind me of Poison Ivy a bit too. Particularly Uma Thurman's Poison Ivy. What do you guys think?
