These handcrafted vessels are based on Diane’s personal history and her observation of elements found in nature. The artist hand-makes these expressive images with inspiration from the blossom of the ‘Bleeding Heart,’ an early spring perennial. The vessels facilitate celebration and reflection on ones life, love and emotional healing. They are created from high fire glazes, stoneware clay and toppers made from found and saved objects.
These special vessels have recently been installed in two state run children’s institutions as a form of therapeutic healing and have been very positively received. Plans are now in place for additional Healing Vessels to be installed in a women’s cancer center and a children’s hospital.
