    Willow Cradle

    The willow cradles are full of story, stars and storms, woven for a life coming in. How are we shaped by what surrounds us? The cradles carry the smell and texture of the willow, a vessel for a baby's gaze to dance across the weave and being held in the beautiful weave of the basket, sleeping, growing. The cradles are created from the earth, the hands, and into the hearts and homes weaving this new life into the world. I imagine these cradles as doorways into a healing relationship with birth and the earth.

    Willow and Wood Coffin

    The willow and wood coffins are made available to backers the same way they are available to the world outside of this kickstarter. I see these coffins as doorways for bringing death back into the hands of the people. They are woven up as a deep wish for us as humans to come into relationship with death, empower ourselves with the information we need in our lives to die well. There are so many different ways these coffins can come into people's lives and I look forward to talking with individuals and communities who are interested in working together. I see these coffins as possibilities for co-creation - weaving stories into the vessel for a specific person or place.

    If you do choose a coffin, you will be sent a survey that begins that co-creation process, as well as scheduling a session to come together to talk more about the possibilities of working together.

    There are possibilities for shipping, but will be organized individually based on shipping and/or delivery needs.
