The "WHY" I guess I can explain it this way.
My hands form the gentle waves of thin, fine silver which remind me of rippling fabric. By the time I am done I have pulled and pushed the metal, and slapped it against the table edge, till the design pleases me. I look at the finished sketch and see movement then a stretch of calm or rest. Unknowingly, I often transition into a peaceful sweep aiming toward a stone or a forged wire. I feel my life has been dominated by these groundswells, since my husband’s death in 2013. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that they feature in my designs.
