Red Clay Stillness
Full color Dharma Wheel artist's print
Available framed or unframed
The common but wonderful occurrence of a stone warmed in the desert sun can prove transcendental to the touch. In the winter, fingers and hands welcome heat that seems impossible to fathom. In summer, food can be cooked on the surface of certain geologies. A rock with a large flat surface - the kind that allows for the placement of a palm with all five fingers extended – provides a profound connection to the earth no matter how far removed from its resting place.
Among the rocks, stone and soil near my home it is common to find red clay. As a child, clay was so easy to find that I assumed that it was dirt when a I was digging the holes that a young boy digs for no reason other than the fun of digging a hole. And, while clay rarely holds the heat of a desert stone when in its natural resting place, it demonstrates particular and peculiar properties that allow it change states profoundly.
What was once both hard and malleable at the same time can be shaped into bricks for building homes. Clay can be molded into cooking pots, artwork, pipes, and more. It can even become an oven.
Clay is made from entirely natural components – flora, fauna and minerals.
