"Dance of Life"
small wall piece
about 3 inches tall
materials: epoxy clay, polymer clay, silver clay, Swarovski crystals, silver headpins & wire
Oh life is a dance, isn't it? Swirling and spiraling and sparkling and crazy. I wanted to capture that feeling of exuberence and joy with this piece.
about the series: Amor Vincit Omnia
Shortly before the start of the first millennium, the Roman poet Virgil wrote "love conquers all things; let us too surrender to Love." The phrase and the concept (inLatin and in English) caught on: a character in Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, written in the late 1300s, wore a brooch engraved "Amor Vincit Omnia."
