A glamorous production of handmade ceramic by Irish artist Nuala O’Donovan will take your breath away. Stunning buds cling to their position, their patterns are unpredictable, yet they are suggesting a common goal. Its almost as if some have been traumatized or severed, so re-growth accounts for the inconsistencies. Like a bouquet of calla lilies, they rest in splendor and fill us with awe. The wonder of their existence challenges the mind

The artist explains, “The evidence of a response to random events visible in patterns in nature, is testament to the ability of living organisms to recover, to respond, and to continue growing and changing. It is the imperfections in the patterns caused by a unique experience that are evidence of the life force in living organisms.”

    string(7) "Allison"

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
