The making of Music Speaks
Posted Mar 1st 2023
“Music is the foundation of all the performing arts. Music transports us—it can be absorbed quietly, evoking strong memories, or move us in powerful ways. It makes us dance, laugh, cry, sing, create. It’s the cornerstone of so much that we love. Even people with memory loss can enjoy and connect with music... It has a way of directly speaking to the soul.
“As I was contemplating sculpting a piece that is an expression of music, I wanted to etch a pattern that tells a story. The interlocking carvings of dancers and musical instruments flow in a continuous narrative around the figure.
“Her gesture is one of being enraptured. She could be the listener, or she could be the performer, sharing her gift with others.”

A gift for people who are musicians, actors, singers, dancers… those who share their musical talent with others through teaching or performance. Also, a gift for those who ENJOY the performing arts in any form. Both pieces are carved with contrasting pattern of musical symbols, instruments and dancing figures.
