From conception to birth, we present: the Lunar Bowl.

These small bowls evolved in design over years until we found a form that we loved just so.  I was holding one a few weeks ago, feeling its weight and shape and presence cradled in my hands.  I became aware of the ebb and flow inside of me in my day-to-day experience, from moments of great struggle to expansive, clarity and inspiration.  I smiled to myself.  And then I walked across the driveway to Ruben’s shop.  “Can you make chisels in the shape of moon phases?”, I asked.

In honour of the cycle that moves oceans.  In honour of the waxing and waning of self and collective evolution.  In honour of all sacred objects made by hand with heart.

A small stack of these beauties are heading with me to Vancouver Island for a sacred gathering of women under the New Moon at Roundhouse Farm on October 30th, 2016 (still a few spaces remaining!).  The lunar bowl is also now available at our R+R Handmade shop on Etsy.  Made by hand and finished with raw beeswax, each bowl is one-of-a-kind. Oh, and we embrace wabi-sabi, the Japanese aesthetic celebrating imperfection:).

Thanks for taking a peak at our process!

New Moon. Roundhouse.

 

Well, I suppose it’s been in the works for a little while.  Or maybe it’s really been brewing for 28 years, from the leap-year moment my sister was born into my world. We’ve played, we’ve fought, we’ve competed,  we’ve comforted each other, we’ve explored together, we have put each other down, we’ve lived in vastly different worlds.  And in the last few years, as we’ve both invited growth img_6684and realness, our worlds have expanded to include each other as rockin’ inspiration and deeply meaningful company.  Despite the country between us (most of the time), we’ve birthed a sisterhood beyond blood.

 

Now, we’re excited to explore what’s possible when we collaborate!  On October 30th, Cait and I will be welcoming other women into their own growth and realness as we dive into more for ourselves.
