Sumi e Sculpture by Marilyn Wells Showing Soon – Urban Mud is hosting a Members Only Art Show
November 19 at Urban Mud, 530 Santa Fe Dr. from 5:30 to 9 PM
Look for me in the Hallway Shelves with my black “Sacred Feminine” figures.
Zen style, fired-clay original with black glaze, of the “Sacred Feminine” series by Marilyn Wells, inspired by Neolithic hand carvings. I call this Sumi e, as it is black as ink.
Nothing is more pure than the ancient Neolithic figures found, unearthed, housed now in museums, unsigned by forgotten artists. I find a heart connection with each artist whose work I am drawn to. I feel like we are touching hands across the centuries.
Life may not be a straight timeline. I am more inclined to believe God’s world is a circle, as the ancient Celts believed, according to John O’Donohue. I am closing the circle of time by coming back and joining hands with creators from these ancient, prehistoric times.
These are high fired clay ceramics, glazed in black. Each piece is signed and marked by the artist.
This piece is 8” high by approximately 2.5” across at widest point.
