Sol, Luna, Tierra
Cerámica y Arte Floral

About the Ceramics:
Each day is an opportunity to elevate my life through conscious endeavor, to carve and sculpt atmosphere and the medium through which I look, and to attempt to express both with ceramics.

The ‘(t)here Series’ is a part of a the ‘Time and Space Collection’ in which the purpose is to invite the viewer to take a closer look, to wonder and to question the truth of reality.

In ‘The Tree of Life Collection’ the vine has many different meanings and can symbolise growth, spiritual good, celebration, life, regeneration, continuation, opportunity, connection, expansion, fertility, bounty, consciousness, development, renewal, degeneration, wildness.

These series are all functional pieces of Art – for flower and food arrangement – and by collaborating with Ohanami it allows Vanesa and I to show both flower and vessel in their truest form. [Nichole Hastings]

About the Floral Art:
“Ikebana” is from the Japanese ikeru, “keep alive, arrange flowers, living” and hana, “flower”. Possible translations include “giving life to flowers” and “arranging flowers”.

More than simply putting flowers in a container, ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of particolored or multicolored arrangement of blooms, ikebana often emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line, and form. Though ikebana is a creative expression, it has certain rules governing its form. The artist’s intention behind each arrangement is shown through a piece’s color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the usually implied meaning of the arrangement.

Another common but not exclusive aspect present in ikebana is its employment of minimalism. That is, some arrangements may consist of only a minimal number of blooms interspersed among stalks and leaves. The structure of some Japanese flower arrangements is based on a scalene triangle delineated by three main points, usually twigs, considered in some schools to symbolize heaven, earth, and man or sun, moon, and earth. The container can be a key element of the composition, and various styles of pottery may be used in their construction. [Excerpt from Wikipedia]
