Memories... hold each one safely in your heartRemembrance$20.00Description
“This piece is all about memories – how warm, comforting memories help us to heal when we’re missing someone. If you look closely at the carved icons on her dress, each recalls a memory by appealing to our senses…touch, scent, taste, sound, sight. We keep these personal memories safe within us, connecting us to those we love.”
May you find strength, beauty and peace each daya tree, a prayer$20.00Description
“A tree can be a metaphor for strength, beauty and peace — qualities we all aspire to. The prayer is one of hope and healing; about living in the moment. The title is as much a prayer as the sentiment. This piece is very open. The tree can be a symbol of anything that is centering and inspirational. Trees are grounding — a connection to that which sustains us. It could also reference the Tree of Life — a universal symbol in many different religions, both Christian and non-Christian.”
a time to reflect, a time to soarSoar$21.00Description
“The gesture of the figure and the bird communicates forward movement... being uplifted, moving onward; a release of hopes, dreams and spirit; of new beginnings and of endings; in celebration of a life... or in anticipation of a life together.
“This piece could be a way to express best wishes to someone who is taking a new path in life; on a road to recovery from illness or toward self-improvement... A hopeful symbol of peace for military families awaiting the return of their solders... An expression of sympathy to someone who has lost a loved one.”
“The sentiment refers to the song Turn, Turn, Turn, written by Pete Seeger in 1959, adapted from the Book of Ecclesiastes. In the song, there’s a contrast in each example...‘A time to be born/die, plant/reap, laugh/weep’ and so on. I like the lyrical, repetitive nature of the phrasing.
“At significant milestones, we often pause and reflect before moving forward, so ‘a time to reflect, a time to soar’ seemed like a nice expression for this piece.”

Turns and plays “Till the end of time”
Music and movement transform this full-scale, beloved figure. The hand-painted base elevates the figure while it turns beautifully to classic, familiar melodies.
Remembrance turns to the ageless and enduring tune Till the end of time. A comforting way to offer warm remembrances and express sympathy.
Always, I will remember...Remember$20.00Description
“Her gesture could be a reference to memory of an event; a friend or loved one; or a significant point in a relationship. It can be a ‘miss-you’ piece — a symbol for when someone is absent, or given as a gift when you want someone to remember you. It can be a reminder of someone who is not with you, but still very present. This is a very personal piece in that it could represent an emotional time that is known or shared by just the giver and the receiver.”
Love, everlasting and trueLove$33.00Description
“The posture and profile of this piece is somewhat iconic. It speaks about a love so strong that it continues on beyond a lifetime. The words ‘everlasting and true’ express the idea that love can go beyond death. The rose stem gradually blends into her body, so there's no separation between the object that she’s holding and her body. I wanted the whole figure to be a symbol of love, not just the rose.”

Hero, we honor thee, keeping safe your memoryHero$33.00Description
“I carved this memorial in dedication to those who have suffered a loss in the service of others. I want to quietly honor the courage of the hero who has died, and the everyday courage of the hero who is left. This patriot’s grief is to be honored as well. There are other figures in the marketplace about patriotism and honor, but I wanted to create one that acknowledged personal loss. Hero is a melancholy piece. I see it as very much a memorial. On a very personal level, keeping safe your memory is an intimate promise made to one who is gone ... I hope the gesture of her embrace reflects some of these ideas.”

I gave this piece to my mother-in-law this past week, after the unexpected and tragic passing of her 42 year old son. This is the second son she has lost. She broke into tears when she opened the box. She immediately grasped its meaning and stated that she would hold this ornament in the days to come when she knows she will need some comfort. I couldn't think of any words to say or actions to take that would be able to console her so for her to say this little object could make her feel peace is amazing.Read More >
