to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

cairn - part 2

When ceramic artist Anita Huybens came back from a hiking tour through the Chilean Andes she started a series of works based on the local version of 'cairns' called Apacheta or Stone-men. Travelers passing over the mountains will place a stone on top of the structure to ask the spirits for a safe return from their journey. Anita's life is a long journey with many difficulties and so she made her own Stone Sculptures, each one with a meaning and symbolizing the good things and people around her.
