Terra Cotta - Imported from Australia directly from Artist Lucy Pierce

"Forged in Earth and Water, birthed in Air and Fire, purified and cleansed with sage and imbued with Deer medicine drum, may this Terraphim bring a little piece of the power and love, insight and courage, tenderness and awakening of the fierce, loving heart of the Mother Earth into your life! May she remind us of the immense wisdom that dwells within the body, connecting us to Spirit and the Holy Mother who dwells both beneath and within us. Proud and sacred Mother, powerful creatrix of love, we honour you. Your blooming is a gift to the world. Anchoring deep into the exquisite beauty and bountiful power of your body, you find within you all that you need to birth your babe, to birth yourself anew as Mother."

This ceramic goddess embodies a celebration of the blood mysteries of woman. Designed to adorn an altar, she looks great in the garden too. A beautiful gift for a woman journeying through pregnancy and birth, or any woman who is birthing a deeper aspect of her own self, or bravely birthing an endeavor in the world. The imagery and aspects of the design have been inspired by ancient artifacts found throughout the ancient world that celebrated the Great Mother aspect of creation.

The Terraphim is slip cast in Terra cotta and hand-finished. Her dimensions are approximately 13 cm wide x 17 cm high x 5 cm deep.

Although these pieces are made in a mold, each one is hand finished. Due to the nature of this process (and the rustic nature of the artists workshop and kiln) each piece has its own unique qualities and there may be slight differences in tone and detail from one piece to another. 

Due to the porous nature of the clay, the more the piece is handled the better. Natural oils from the skin will enrich the surface quality.
