Here are some of my new beeswax carvings ready for casting. Bee blessings are important.
These will be cast in bronze and pewter.
Hive images from my field project in Oregon, IL.

Peace in progress. Carved clay heart rattle before firing.
This piece has a whole new energy to it.
When I was about 7, I used to make these large conical mounds
during the summer at the beach. I created them with a spiral wrapping
around from the top to the bottom. The channel was large enough for a marble
to roll all the way thru. The trick was to get the walls shaped well so that
the marble would keep moving and not fly off the side.
Around that same time, I went to visit The Giant Heart
at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.
This is a remarkable two-story heart with a pulse that you walk thru.
Remember the Giant Pink Sea Snail in Dr. Dolittle?
Stay with me in this glimpse into How Whitney's Mind Works.
Do you recall the inner chambers of the snail, as they climb inside
with all of their goodies for the voyage?
Last part. Travel on over to the Glastonbury Tor.
Feel the undulations of the energy of that great earthen mound.
There is a spiral sequence to feeling the full pulse of that site.
What is this all about? Well . . . Spherical Consciousness.
Holding several dimensions of awareness, simultaneously.
Thinking (or feeling) Outside of the Sphere.
This heart fits in your hand, AND you can journey thru of it's grander landscape.
A (temple)ate or key to an etheric city of the Golden Age.
p.s. Did I mention Lost in Space: Trip Through the Robot ?
Seriously, it was the best episode.
The Robot ventures into the Valley of Shadows to die,
because he is very low on power. Will and Smith find him, grown to monstrous size!
The two enter the now-huge robot and make adjustments to start the Robot's "heart" again.
They walk thru his heart in order to fix it. Very Madeleine L'Engle.

Here are some recent pieces fired in a gas kiln.
I'm moving more from doing what I do in these small pieces towards
creating this language in larger environments. What I call Elemental Art.
I love the intimacy of creations that fit in the hand, but the larger "stories" are
a vital way of engaging with the elemental and celestial realms.
Co-creating with Nature's Imagination.
The Singing Stones™ have gone all around the world.
They're the very first pieces I created in clay 12 years ago and I'll always be inspired
to carve them in some form or another. Each one is hollow and has it's own
unique sound and "songline".
