Wearable Waters for the Spiritual Being
My life’s work is to understand and communicate with water. I work with it in all its layers – from the tiny microorganisms that live in one drop to huge oceans and sea creatures, as well as lakes, rivers, clouds, mist, rain, sleet, hale, icebergs, and glaciers. I live in the Northwest of Ireland and it rains here a lot, mostly pure North Atlantic water, swept up in the storms above Greenland and Iceland.
As an artist and researcher, I have traveled extensively with my work, sampling waters in northern Europe, the USA, and South Africa as well as the Arctic circle, attending symposia, collaborating with university faculties, and presenting several international solo exhibitions.
My practice resonates with healing techniques through water, involving vials of water essences, and the inversely proportionate strengths and values of healing. ‘Teardrops in Wonderscape (2008)’ was my starting point, exploring how a drop of water has the capacity to hold the memory of a substance that has passed through it. The investigation of this notion of water as a conductor of memory has led to an interest in homeopathy. Intrigued by the emotional content of a tear, I began collecting tears from the public to make a homeopathic remedy. Each tear, like a snowflake, has its own unique structure.
By 2012, my thinking had developed further, with the intention of working towards healing polluted bodies of water. I traveled to the Arctic waters around Svalbard and worked with Masaru Emoto, best known for his belief that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.
The orbs are hand blown in Sligo Ireland by glass artist Graham Reid. Each glass vessel is uniquely created to hold a Water Essence.
Graham blows a glass vessel to hold the water essence, which is then sealed inside the glass, so they can be worn as wearable waters. They are suited to daily wear as well as special occasions. They are hand-blown borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is a durable form of glass with great clarity, light transfer properties, and heat resistance.
