loving the idea of contain


mary jane dodd



'the deeper that sorrow carves into your being

the more joy you can contain.

is not the cup that holds your wine

the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?'

~ kahlil gibran



i have a particular fondness for containing things in resin -





messages - translated through ephemera, natural and vintage objects...





allowing delicacy of emotion and materials to be preserved...

One of my favorite quotes since losing my birth mom... Do I see tabs on that top piece? =) Beautiful.

What a lovely quote-and one that I had never heard before.

Beautiful pieces!!!

I love resin for that same reason. The preservation of the delicate and tiny treasures our hearts wrap themselves around. The quote is perfect and forever true~
