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.

Eastern continental celtic design on a pruning knife.

Design inspired by Eastern Sword Style decoration on iron scabbards 3rd century BC ( Croatia ).

I tried to get around that Eastern celtic Style for a while and no wood was happy with it until now ! Finally it took a knife , more a boline to accept this beautiful style not very well known but which deserves a great deal of interest... I will be exploring this style a bit deeper in the near future.

This knife is already Sold, and is going to great people that are gardening a lot and here in Oklahoma. It is actually a birthday present from a lovely wife to her husband! :)

An unexpected return from Tir Nag na n'Og

We are back from our vacation since almost a week already ! Unfortunately I had to do some pretty intense cleansing energy work in the House and the Studio. Bad people with very bad energies violated our home when we were gone in Tir na n'Og ! The animals were shook up , but with Love and care they are back to play and show happiness once again . All is well now , Harmony , Peace and Love are restored in our humble Home , and in the studio . From today and finally, I can get back to work!

But wait ! Our time in the Island was fantastic , it feels so natural to be there ,there are so many loving people in such a little piece of Land in the middle of the Big Great Sea , life is simple there , not easy but simple , and that always felt right. The welcome back was so warm , and totally regenerate my all Self, my soul had find its home again , I wish to move back there for good , May the Gods help us! :)

By the ebb and Flow .
