Each sculpture in Margot’s Mystical Dreamer Collection expresses its own unique personality. Resonant with enough serenity and joy to brighten the cloudiest day, the handcrafted sculptures evoke deep soulful emotion. With no two alike, they make up a village of strong, loyal mystics who have attained peace within themselves. Their purpose is to inspire joy to all in their presence.
In the early 1980s Margot traveled to Italy with a local artists group where she spent three months studying sculpture. Upon her return, she enrolled in a workshop on sculpture technique. At the same time, Margot serendipitously found a book on Haniwa, ancient Japanese tomb sculptures from the 3rd through 6th centuries. The Haniwa’s gentleness, found in their eyes and faces, brought instant joy and peace to Margot.
With Haniwa as inspiration, Margot began creating simple terracotta sculptures. As she developed her skills with handbuilding, her simple sculptures evolved. Margot’s unique artistic style mostly derives from the relationship she feels with every sculpture. Her wish is to share the strength, joy and peace the sculptures emanate.
These sculptures are first bisque fired then pit fired. With this approach, she lets each piece takes its own unique style. These sculptures have innocent expressions embodying serenity and joy in a heartwarming beauty. They are true living art forms.
