Honoring the Earth in the Native American Tradition

Love of Earth’s Alabaster

For 36 years the Southwest Desert, the bones of the Earth, has inspired our work.  We have devoted our artistic lives to honoring this Earth and its beauty and to the creative process which expresses itself through our passion for and love of our chosen material, Alabaster.

This “Queen of Stones” inspires us to reveal its hidden beauty, its translucency, color and myriad patterns laid down by Earth’s mineral and geologic changes.  This love of Earth and its beauty is passed on when someone opens their hearts and falls in love with one of the pieces we’ve carved.

The connection to Earth is passed on when those participating in our workshops connect with their own sense of inner mastery as they carve their Alabaster and open a communication between their hearts and the heart of the stone.  As we tell all who carve, our Native Americans call stone their grandmothers and grandfathers because they were here long before us and are what we are made of.  We will return to the Earth and become the stone that our future generations will carve.

So carve with love and gratitude for the stone will hold the memory of your energy and intention!
