This piece is a very special piece to me! Whilst I was making it it split right through the middle in the firing! I absolutely loved the piece and didn't want to let it go! But it split perfectly almost like a river cutting through the middle of it in a perfect curve! So this piece means a lot more with the magic of what the fire encouraged it to do, hence the cluster of white butterflies flying up through it's middle.
I really love this contemporary theme of black and white with just the one bright red umbrella! It can symbolise so many things in life and comes from the expression "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain".
