Earth and Fire
by Sari Cecilia Arts


The Mother Earth series is a deep exploration of the simplicity and beauty that already exists in nature. The gourd is a natural object which sprouts out of the earth to provide nourishment for us. In these pieces the gourd represents the mother or more specifically mother earth. She is beautiful and natural and simple. To me these are the qualities of a loving mother. This piece is about the Earth & Fire on the land. The Australian bush sometimes has a turbulent relationship with Mother Earth. The fire can dominate the wood and death and devastation are a result of these two elements experiencing imbalances like bush fires. And yet in all these bush fires we experience a human result is a strong sense of comradely love and support in our communities. It is overwhelmingly humbling. The markings on “Earth and Fire” are deep and scorched onto the gourd. The marks I make are a way of juxtaposing the beauty and the turbulence of fire and earth.
