The Dream Keeper

THE DREAM KEEPER was inspired by a poem of the same name by Langston Hughes. In my version, it is the Moon that guards our hopes and dreams. The background bamboo strips are tooled by bandsaw and painted with an umber glaze, then scratched off in areas, to create tonal effects. The foreground is composed of bamboo strands with movable rings ("our dreams") of bamboo attached. I knife-honed the bamboo strands of the Moon until they could flex gracefully across the panel. Each piece in the mosaic is a finished tessera in itself, with edges slightly beveled.
