Well, after some time of blog absence, I am back with some new stuff. Due to some chaotic conditions in my every-day life I wasn't that productive during the last months, at least when it comes to crafting new items. However I managed to do some new original designs for my next works. Here some examples:
Circles of the beasts:
Explanation: One of the main impulses for my artworks is nature. The beast in us is a primordial heritage which still (spell)binds us to our origin. There is no contradiction between nature (which is our origin) and a creative culture (which makes us human). Rather it is this cultural ability that gives us the possiblity to use and control these dynamic natural traits on a conscious level that is unique among all species. In these patterns (like in the old ages) the borders between nature and culture are reversed, the beast is transcended into the root of the spirit.
To put those beasts into these circular shapes was a conscious decision to merge the untamed power of the animal within us with the dynamic of the ancient fylfot (swastika) which is the basic pattern for the three designs above.
I will post some crafted items containing these new designs very soon!
