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!

Contemporary Climate Issues and Alabaster Carving

The Environment and Alabaster Carving

Our ‘contemporary issue’, which encompasses environmentalism, conservation, climate change, land use rights, water issues, is people’s lack of connection with and responsibility for our Mother Earth. Taking care of and conserving our environment is what Paul and I do!  We gather our own rare colored and translucent Alabasters all over the Southwest and transform each precious piece into a vessel of beauty! We honor, preserve and elevate this stone from disintegration in a cliff face or from being crushed for industrial uses. We bring the beauty, bounty and healing powers of our Earth directly to you through our creations.

Our Earth Art inspires. It touches hearts and reminds us of our true origins and responsibilities.

We are so fortunate to be artists, to be self-directed adults, to make beauty and to bask in the beauty all around us.  We encourage everyone to do their own work, to follow their own dreams, to listen to themselves, to have trust in their own heart’s vision. As self-supporting stone carving artists for 36 years we inspire and encourage people to follow their own hearts.  This could only lead to the highest good for all, including our mothership.

Artists in Residence at the Grand Canyon

Beauty of Alabaster Carvings

Since the birth of our art form we’ve been involved with carving the desert landscape, the bones of the Earth where they stick out. It’s always been a dream to carve ‘in situ’. Has anyone ever heard of ‘plein air carving’? It’s been a long, long, long, time dream to carve other points on the Canyon and to do Yaki Point again! The Canyon’s spaciousness would enter us and our work and would then be shared with the world.

Being artists in residence at the Canyon would give our art form the opportunity to be seen and enjoyed by visitors from all over the planet. It would give us the opportunity to turn those people on to the beauty, wonder and abundance of Alabaster all over the Earth, it’s potential as an underused material that can help create work, jobs, industry and beauty.

Being at the Canyon for 3 weeks! Being able to pursue our form in the place it resides! Carving these landforms in their presence would be sensational, seminal and probably birth something brand new.

3 weeks on the Grand Canyon! Just what the doctor ordered! A prescription for spaciousness, peace, inspiration, exhilaration not only for us but also for the people who enjoy our creations and process!
