When I first read the American mystic Joseph Campbell's words that the secret of life was to "Follow Your Bliss!" I thought: "How Selfish"!
Silly ME!!
I have since come to understand that the pursuit of Bliss is not at all about being self-centered, it's not about the little "me, Me, ME" that is in my head and is constantly searching for "things". True BLISS is about the connecting and awakening to the Spirituality {Divine} that lives inside of me, that lives in the "Heart-center" of ALL of Us!! Following that Bliss, that Divine Spirituality, however it looks to each individual is the only Life Path that brings True Peace and Love and Joy and all the things that really matter.

"Don't ask so much what the world needs.
Go out and do what makes you come alive,
because what the world needs most
are people who have come alive."
Howard Thurman

So GO Ahead.......
Follow YOUR Bliss....it's a Phenomenal Journey!!!

♥ Handmade from the Earth with LOVE just for You!™ ♥

In the last one I have grouped together 3 of my other Poetry Birds so you can see what they would look like in a "Flock of Words and Wings", aren't they Beautiful?

~*▲~*♥*~▲~*♥•*~POETRY INFORMATION~*▲~*♥*~▲~*♥•*~
This beautiful Bird wall hanging is made from rolled out stoneware clay that has been completely hand cut, (body, wings, tail pieces) and I do not use forms or patterns, so every one is totally unique and different. While the clay is still "wet" I have impressed the wings and tails with a variety of stamps including vintage textile blocks from India that are about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!), clay stamps I have made myself and even pieces of shells and pods I have collected on my journeys. I use Vintage Letterpress Wooden stamps for the words on my Poetry Birds.

After the Poetry Bird been fired the first time I applied stains and then rubbed them off here and there to give the piece a rustic look, then I added a few colored glazes to accentuate the stamped designs on the wings and tails. Each Bird has been fired a second time for durability and strength to create an inspiring piece that can be hung indoors or outside in a protected area. On the back of each Bird I have created a clay loop and then attached a hanger made from recycled copper wire.

The Poetry Bird is about 17" wide and 8" tall and is signed and dated on the back by yours truly.

Thank you for stopping by and looking at my new Poetry Birds!
Peace and smiles....Kristin
