The newest SweetSilver series of 2017: Escapism
The Escapism Series draws inspiration from childhood memories and semi-remembered dreams. "Whereas I've heard that people often dream of flying, my dreams as a child mostly involved being on or under the sea. Even now, when I escape into daydreams, I usually imagine myself relaxing on a boat in the middle of the ocean."
This series is an escape into a semi-unreal world of dreams, and seeks to encourage the increase of daydreaming in everyday life.
Well, what's your dream?
Silver is precious and lovely.
But there’s a lot more silver in this world than you might suspect…
The ‘silver’ things in the world are freely available. Look out the window: every star and planet is a tiny, beautiful, enormous silver gift. Look at yourself: you are made of trillions of cells each doing fascinating things.
These free and wonderful ‘silver’ things are precious gifts for everyone.
SweetSilver creations are little reminders of the world, because sometimes we exist without really living. We constantly need to be reminded of the real silver around us.
Joyful surprise at the lovely, and consciousness of the cruel, both feature in SweetSilver creations – without either, we are ignorant. Even in the darkest moments, there is always something to be amazed at.
SweetSilver is a reaction to wonderful things. Even darkness can be something wonderful.
"Light is sweet, and it pleases the eye to see the sun.
However many years a man may live, let him enjoy them all."
– Ecclesiastes 11:7-8
