I’ve been working with clay a lot recently. It just seems to express my ideas in a different form. This piece is a little dragon, surrounded by delicate lotus leaves. A culmination of spiritual energy in a rutilated quartz. They sit well together. The dragon, the lotus and his stone. A lot of the pieces i make seem like amulets. Though this was not intentional. My mind was somewhere else in the spiritual realm. Its just what the energy seems to bring forth. I think this was the case with crystal pieces ive made. I try to celebrate the beauty of the life and energy of the crystal. But its bought and worn as an amulet. Two different perspectives.
This is my first attempt making mooncakes. Its not perfect but it tastes nice. I used blue pea flower to colour the mooncake blue and beetroot and rose essence + home made rose water for the pink mooncakes. The mold is a dragon. I always feel like the dragon is talking to me while i eat my mooncake. The dragon just looks talkative. The filling is brown sugar less sweet lotus paste. Its an enjoyable experience making mooncakes. Will try to improve. Much love to you all. Hope you are all finding creative things to do in lockdown or during Covid.
