Wire and metal Tree Of Life sculptures with the Essence of Nature and Legends

About the Artwork and Artist

 Trees exist as symbols in many cultures/religions and often represented as mediators between the natural and spiritual worlds. Native people refer to Trees as Standing People/Standing One, and the Stones referred to as the Ancient Ones, both being in unity for thousands of years communicating and connecting with each other and with humans, providing protection, strength, peace, harmony and spiritual contentment. Tree Of Life is a symbol about wisdom, unity, communication, connection, and a message to us that we are not alone. They have been said to be Earth's efforts to speak to the Heavens and the Forest/Groves were "God's first temples". Celts used groves as a place to worship, and in other other belief systems, churches or chapels were often set within groves of Trees, because the natural setting was found to be powerfully peaceful and spiritual. The Essence of Legends and Nature, however symbolic the artwork is for you, it is up to "the eye of the beholder" how the artwork fits into your life.

 Linda Crislip is a self-taught artist living quietly in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Since 2002 she has created her unique metal tree sculptures combining them with various minerals: agates, geodes, selenite, and other various semi-gemstones and gemstones. She relies on her study of geology, folklore and legends, and naturally occurring shapes and colors in the wilderness surrounding her home. She carefully selects compatible colors and stones thought to have special properties to bring a feeling of comfort and significance to each piece. Every sculpture Linda creates is  hand-crafted one-of-a-kind three dimensional art. Collectors in many countries as well as in the USA have purchased Linda’s artwork.

What's with the Name "Crows Feathers"? In Native American folklore, the Crow is often associated with magic and change. Predominantly, bringing thought into physical form, transformation, the passing from one realm into another. The creations start much in the same way: first, a feeling/thought that slowly transforms into a physical form - a different reality/dimension (the artwork). The physical creative process begins with the purchase or found materials (copper wire, minerals, lamp bases, etc.). There are no molds used, no lost wax and nothing is outsourced.

There is a great deal of joy and peace in making these creations and simply delighted when customers tell how very touched they are by the way the artwork makes them feel when they touch it for the very first time. The Essence of Nature and Legends, however symbolic the artwork is for you, it is about bringing a little of peace and harmony into your home/office.
Thanks for coming. Enjoy your visit!
