|People often ask where we get our visual ideas. The Lifelines series is loosely based on the lines and ridges that are the individual landscapes of our palms. Like the palms of our hands, each carving is unique. |
Gerry began this series in the winter of 2013-14. For him the contours represent the paths we have chosen, the hills and valleys we have crossed and, hopefully, the lessons learned along the way.
With this in mind, Gerry has named each carving with a short phrase meant to impart a small wisdom.
Each phrase is burned onto the back of the carving.
They are, of course,chosen from his own 'lifelines'. Each phrase is meant to encourage the wearer to explore a deeper level in their own lives.
So many dreams we keep to ourselves. Don't be afraid of your ideas. Don't fear the reaction of others if you share those dreams. You never know what may come from those dreams until you give voice to them.
WE have only one copy of these available.
