WHAT I DO

Original Dreamcatcher and Jandal wall hangings  

My dreamcatchers and jandals are my own design incorporating sea shells that are mostly collected by hand by me. The dreamcatcher ornaments and jandals  are made from air dry clay and these shells.

The dreamcatcher hoops are wrapped in ribbon or jute and the webs are made with bamboo, jute or paper twine.  Real feathers are used (and more recently ethically sourced ones) and predominantly wooden or glass beads.

Dreamcatchers are said to protect the one sleeping when the dreamcatcher is placed over the bed or place of repose.  There are many variations on the folklore of these traditional native American works.  I hope you enjoy my style of them.

Clay Design

Clay is rolled, cut and smoothed into a design.
Shells are then pressed into the clay.

Dry

The clay work is left to dry slowly for several days.

Finishing

Once the work is dried and sanded, paint and a water based varnish give a splash proof seal.
