|STUDY IN ANGELS 1991-2016
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.
Celeste is new for 2016. She simply celebrates the moon
and the stars and all their glory.
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.
