Spirit Pots

Carleen Brigley is an artist and potter located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. A Sense of Serenity is the original retailer of her Spirit Pot line. Below is Carleens explination of her spirit pots and her inspiration for creating them.

"These pots were born out of my need to be self-contained and whole within myself. I began rolling strings of clay and then curling and molding them into vessels—allowing serendipity to guide their swirls and placement. I consider them sacred containers that house authenticity. I love creating each one-of-a-kind piece. My intention is that they bring you stillness and peace of heart and mind.

In early Hawaii, children received at birth, a bowl called a Kalabash. Each child was asked to place a stone inside the bowl for each hurt, slight, moment of anger, jealousy, and so forth. At night children were encouraged to reflect on each stone and then release them from the bowl, allowing them to begin each new day with spirit restored. The souls bright and smooth, shining like the inside of these pots—that glistening core of humanity we all share despite uniquely complex exteriors and stories."~ Carleen Brigley

“We are our form and our formlessness. We are both visible and invisible, and we need to honor our totality, not just what we can see and touch.”
