Coventina is a Celtic river goddess of wells and springs. She is also associated with renewal, abundance, healing, new beginnings, life cycles, wished and prophecy. In worship to her coins and other objects were tossed into wells as offerings. Sacred wells often are revered as having healing powers. Yet water is the lifeblood of the planet, and our principle component – who wouldn’t experience awe at a natural spring as it bubbles up from within Mother Earth, providing for us?
My tiles are original designs, often with a mythological or art historical reference. I sculpt and carve the original in clay and make a plaster press mold. Having a mold allows me to streamline the process and reproduce my design in multiples. Each one is hand painted with a variety of glazes and underglazes; each one is unique. They are ready to hang, bringing a little myth and symbolism to your everyday.
