Thoughts on Art, Inspiration, Creativity and Spirit

Fire Spirit Messenger

4 Comments

Earlier this year members of the Bolton Artisans Guild were challenged to create a piece of art based on a particular theme.  The theme of “Fire” was chosen for our first challenge. 

My Fire Spirit Messenger represents one of the five elements; fire.  Fire represents the planet Mars, the south, summer and it governs heat.  Fire also represents creativity and passion.  Its color is red.  Its motion is upward, hence the flames dancing upward on her body.

She is approximately 10″ tall.  Red dagger beads adorn her head.  The branches are dried Liatris stems.  Fresh water pearls secure her wrap.

  3. Hi Amy, Fire Spirit Messenger is so beautiful and full of spirit! The dagger beads on top of her head are great. They look like flames.
    I hope to meet her in person someday! -Karen

  4. Hi Ladies,

    Thank you for your kind words. I admit to not really liking Fire Spirit until I started to work on the base and finishing touches. Then she really came to life and took on a personality all her own. I guess you could say she “sparked” a flame in me.

    -Amy
