courage & gladness artblock

A new addition to our elemental women series...

Since we moved to Cape Cod, we've been having dreams of water. As you can see, it comes out in the layers of blue-green on the final piece... 

perhaps it’s time to remember, she said, that you have always been this way in dreams & have always known how to live with courage & gladness

artblock shown here (as a general guide) is on hickory: 5" x 6.5" x 7/8"

    • average size of artblock: 4.5" W x 6" H x 1" D
    • hardwood species will vary according to what we have on hand
    • packaged in an organic cotton bag with a small card telling a brief history of the chosen wood & the bird & brush series
    • each block is shaped & painted here in the studio with our unique bird & brush process:  the final piece has at least eight layers of paint, ink, & graphite (including a secret handwritten wish...) - making each an original

      The art was created by Kai on 13 January 2022. 

      • all the wood in our studio is reclaimed from companies dedicated to salvaging old buildings & recycling the wood for new projects
      • here in the studio, we sand, paint, & hand finish each piece with an earth-friendly beeswax.
      • artist chop on the back of the piece
      • natural grain on the sides and back exposed to show the raw wood
