The Language of Symbols

The K Robins Studio is located near Wintergreen Mountain Resort in Nellysford, Virginia. Our homegrown business of family and friends currently resides in the Rockfish Valley Community Center, a thriving community of artists, musicians, farmers, healing practitioners and social activists.

Artist Statement

Expression through art and craft has been a lifelong companion for me. The images and themes of these designs tell a personal, yet universal story.

The work with symbols began about 30 years ago at a time of extreme upheaval. I changed from making art that was functional to art that was very personal and symbolic. The new work, with symbols and figurative images, gave me comfort, strength and insight. As my life continued to challenge me, symbolic art became a path or practice.

When I design I am looking for the simplest, most direct lines I can find to express my emotion. For me it similar to tuning a musical instrument; as I tune/stroke the lines the goal is to make the design sing or resonate.

I was born and raised in Virginia and reside there in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The soft green hills and fresh mountain rivers of Nelson County have provided a comforting and nourishing place to raise my three children and build community. An epiphany of sorts occurred around 1980 and I began to see life in a new way. While my young children played upstairs I would steal away to my basement shop where I normally made furniture, cooking utensils and an assortment of other wooden things. Now to my amazement, out of the wood and sawdust, a series of female figurines was erupting. The original cherry, boxwood, rosewood and ebony symbols and figures have evolved into a line of silver pendants that includes nearly 100 designs.

Family, deep friendships and an array of teachers have been a steady source of inspiration. Their outpouring of talent, courage, and wisdom has profoundly affected my work. Some pieces, such as Aphrodite, Shakti and Changer are visionary, that is, I see them in my mind first. They work as affirmations or visualizations. Others, like Raven, Cerridwen and Vrksasana are attempts to capture qualities that amaze me in people I know and love. Many of the designs come from my fascination with the language of symbols and how the art of different cultures and times echoes around the world.

All cultures surround themselves with symbols of some sort and naturally pass them reverently from generation to generation. Symbols lift and guide us through life's interwoven cycles of birth, life, death and rebirth.
