Peace. So simple and yet so complicated all at the same time. I don’t have many words to make sense of yesterday's events in Connecticut. All I know is that since becoming a mother these inexplicable tragedies hit me a whole other way. It seems my mind can take me to being in that scenario oh so quickly and rush back just as fast…
I was thinking of peace and the first polymer connection that came into my head was this
This is a beautiful crane fashioned from polymer by Judy Dunn. She generously shared her conversion of the ancient origami method to the polymer arena – in video! - here
Judy was also using her skills to shed light on the losses of the war in Iraq, although I haven’t heard news of this in some time, it seems the blog is now by invitation only, so I don’t have current information to share. Back in 2008, she shared a letter detailing her project to Yoko Ono in beautiful words and pictures.
Peaceful thoughts for all.
