Within the last 2 months I've received a request for a special mosaic box and have gotten it completed. A fellow pagan saw my Earth Spirit box in my ArtFire shop and asked if I could do something similar but on a larger basis, adding a pentacle and a couple of specific words in reference to the element of Earth. The rest of the design was left to my choosing. Here is the finished box:
I am very honored to have been asked to do this commission work, as it is a special gift that will be given to her son during an upcoming ritual. I tried very hard to let the spirit of Earth speak through my work to make this a unique, meaningful, and useful piece of art.
Because this is a gift for a male, I thought the Green Man would be an appropriate deity to adorn this box, as well as the pentacle and lots of flowers, oak & maple leaves.
I enjoy special commission pieces because they always challenge me and stretch my talents. I come away from the experience having learned so much, every time! This time was no different, I feel I've reached yet another level in my creativity and I'm pleased with the outcome and thankful for the opportunity.
