What we root ourselves in will feed and sustain us. If we grow deeply, searchingly, frost will never reach our source of life no matter how loud the wind howls or ice burns.
My own interpretation of Furthark, one side says "deep roots are not", the other side say "reached by frost".

I use Recycled copper to make my tin bronze, its also called ancient bronze, the material is truly old having been used for thousands of years. Everything is carved and cast in my studio, this is a time consuming process that involves many steps, I take every measure to insure each piece is a work of art.
The leather lace I use is premium quality top grain vegetable tan cowhide that I cut into lace, work, dye and finish myself in my studio, its finished with an acrylic sealant to provide long term protection from oils and water.

An unknown Phal hybrid, I keep it because I love the contrast between browns, whites and greens
