Today marks the shortest day of the year and the longest night. It is a time to wrap up and retreat inside the circle. We light candles of brightness within, and nurture our hopes for spring. Because from today, the days get longer. We journey towards the light. From here we grow, and the little flames we have lit lick upwards and outwards towards the sun. So we thought today was the perfect day to catch you up on some of our news.
For my own new design brand, Wild Moon Rising, we are deep in the research&design phase. It involves lots of drawing and etching and painting and sculpting, and lots of experimentation with new materials. Nothing ever goes quite to plan, because the creative process isn't about plans, but more about life, so it's winding and looping and swirling in between all the rest of the exciting, messy things unfolding in our studios and within the foundry space.
As I learn and play, I come closer and closer to the heart of what I want to make and why. I want to find points of connection across communities, and offer tangible forms of support. I seek to create a framework for everyday rituals, in which ordinary processes like bathing and tea-drinking and talking become something sacred and mindful. Big ideas playing out in small moments.
In every direction we are expanding into deeper and bigger. Both Luke and Seth have put into process their largest pieces to date. We are wiggling with excitement to see how those turn out, but we'll keep all the details under wraps for a grand reveal in a little bit;) What we can share is Seth's progress on his new series Face Masks, which you can check out on his newly revamped site here, and Luke's upcoming gig in Hillcrest. On the auspicious Friday 13th July, Luke will be featuring in an intimate dinner performance at Conscious Cafe. Follow us on Instagram for all the info on this awesome event.
