Lost Within My History
Unique Cast Bronze, Patina, Glass, Brass, 14” x 6” x 6”, 2022
As a young girl, my dad had these amazing, beaded works of art that he made, and from time to time, I would start but then stop or walk away from learning, leaving pieces in mid-process. I was young, then later my life was busy, and one reason after another kept me from history and time. My dad has passed away, and that time I could have spent with him learning and hearing his stories of how and why the thread it pulled through the beeswax and the cut of the bead and the way to hold the needle is lost. I lost not just the history but him and that time with him. I am now looking to teach myself these ways, and I hold him in my mind and my heart as I go forward.
