|STUDY IN ANGELS 1991-2018
Each Burk’Art angel started with a series of sketches, and
then patterns were cut out like paper dolls. The patterns
were then tested in the clay. Prototypes developed. Fired,
glazed....and reviewed. After about 10 prototypes a
rhythm develops and one style emerges.
The original angel, Lacy began in 1991 as I developed the
Nativity Scene. Naturally, I needed an angel for the set.
“Grace” defines momentum; it is a form of energy. It is a
coping mechanism, an act of faith, or optimism. Angel Grace
has double wings ...there are just some days when “grace”
needs a double set of wings to soar. And other days
double set of wings is an artistic statement.
My first creative Angel experience was in second grade. I
portrayed The Angel in the Nativity Story. Tinsel halo,
white linen sheet, satin cord around my waist. Who knew
what that experience later would foster.
