Started in a dream
It started with a dream of the complete piece.
And like any other dream, the details have dissolved, but the feeling, shape and concept remain.
In the dream I saw theses "seed" shapes in a hole in the ground, that is the same shape as the "seed" shapes. (seed-pod where not how I saw it in my dream, it is how my mind has learned to talk about them)
So I put up some paper and started to draw what I felt. Feeling and drawing. Then I tried to explore that shape in clay.
I do know at some point the shape on the ground will be about 5 feet long, which means that is a lot of clay. Throughout the process, other thoughts arise; i.e., Impermanence, what we seed, what we plant.
This is the process as of today. I know all of this may change as I follow the energy, but we will see.
