Le sable pour sortilège

« Travailler le sable , c’est sculpter à l’envers, c’est “ressouder” les grains entre eux , et modeler la pierre. Ce n’est pas creuser, mais construire un nouveau volume, dans toute sa fragilité. » Ainsi Oona gwelloc’h évoque t’elle son plaisir à minutieusement, doucement, bouleverser la nature. Sans jamais, bien sûr, lui manquer de respect.

Le sable, donc: L’artiste le colore, pigments en poudre minérale, ou végétale, qui soudain font corps et âme avec les grains, alliance chaude, mate, d’une inégalable profondeur, plongée ensorcelante d’une nature vers une autre, comme une évocation des cycles de transformation, après la Vie , la mort, et de nouveau la vie.

Entre peinture et sculpture, ensuite, il s’agit de travailler la matière en fines couches successives, mille feuilles instinctivement composé, au fil d’un geste inlassablement répété, mouvement méditatif grâce auquel atteindre une dimension inédite, de l’infiniment petit -le grain- à l’infiniment grand - le cosmos- de l’hier au toujours, de la réalité à l’intemporel.

Empreints de thèmes symboliques ou mythologiques, Les « sablés » d’ Oona gwelloc’h racontent tous une histoire d’outre-monde, fossiles d’art qui disent l’au-delà. Un au-delà serein, d’emblée inscrit dans l’éternité.

Nine Waves of Peace talisman .

Nine waves of Peace pendant , or Talisman if you let Peace submerge you !
The difference in between a pendant and a talisman is if the owner "dare to listen" the intent put in the piece . I create this piece with the intent to give peace to the future owner , Sea does that to me ! Did you ever site on a beach and listen the waves , getting into the rhythm of the the ebb and flow !? Nothing more peaceful isn't it ?

Hand carved in a chosen piece of Aspen , The finish is organic and without any pigment , only because the true colour of aspen is beautifully clear and perfect on its own. Some woods deserve to be what they truly are and Time will give the patine that will show how it has been used or wear . :)

The finish is totally organic , Mineral oil , essential oil , and bee wax only . It will require a certain maintenance , nourishing the wood with a bee wax sometimes is highly recommended .



  1. Oh Christina , Thank you , I have been so busy recently I did not find the time to contact you again , please forgive me !! I hope all is well on your side ? I 'm working on settling back to a smooth routine then will hopefully find a quiet time to send you an email and follow up on what we started , if you are still interested !? If you are not I would totally understand !! ;-/ ... It has been a crazy year so far ! sorry .

  2. No problems Oonagh, and yes, I'm definitely still interested. I'm trying to ease back into creative mode after our horribly hot and long summer, but can't seem to find motivation at the moment, hmmmm! I love this talisman, and I know the poem/blessing that it comes from too. And I absolutely get that sense of peace from the ocean, it's very close to my heart. Swimming at the beach is one of the few things I do actually love about summer! I've even been known to swim in winter, but of course, our winters are pretty mild! Hope all is well with you too!

  3. Great to have some news from you , Christina ! :) I just received couple of orders that I need to get to work on as soon as possible , and hopefully will have a bit of free time to get back to you . Take it easy , enjoy your winter , motivation will come with inspiration , sometimes time of rest is when inspiration like to come ! :)
    Nine waves of Peace to you and your Family ! ;) ... oonagh
