This poem was written in response to an invitation to create an exhibition, which we called ‘where the streams come from’. This piece was made more recently using that poem and features clay layered on clay, with the poetry inscribed and flashes of glaze.
The framed piece is 19cm square and has a metal hanger at the top of the frame.
The poem reads..
Will the river run forever?
Will it irrigate?
Will it recreate the flow of life in me?
Will it roll this world like laughter?
Or will it dry like the salt tears of a woman
Done with weeping?
