Over the last month I have sat with the ivy and have continued to explore making cordage from vines. On my walks, I have been finding vines that have been pulled from trees, and adding them to my collection! I am finding my flow in processing, and surrendering to this plant and waiting for the lessons it wants to share with me. I originally planned to have my first sculpture done this month, but it has not happened yet. This is ok- things are still being sorted out, and I am continuing to prepare and work with this fascinating being.
My intention is over the summer to use the cordage I have made to begin my first sculpture. Let's see what Ivy's plans are.
