An essay on the inspiration to create artistic composition of textile sculptures - felt clouds
I called the composition of felted clouds - art objects and decorative pillows - "When the Water dreams ... clouds are born!"
This poetic name for me expresses the one mysterious, magical process that creates clouds.

This process actually transfer water from one place to another, exchanging matter and energy, but at the same time so really the Water travels!
Water floats over the world and brings different information, thus transfers what is accepted and remembered by some places and it gives others.
It is not always good in terms of our moral and ethical notions of good and evil, but is always an exchange of energy.
This creates harmony.
Because the Water builds up our bodies and the body of this magical planet, which is our home, our Mother and we are also a whole - water people, aquatic creatures on water planet!
This is a light state of our Mother, who keeps her balance, harmonize her own electricity, polarities, her magnetism.
But we are also responsible for this balance, maintaining the balance of her eco system.

pillows for the floor or bed in the living room or bedroom.
They are well-crafted, solid, firm and very strong. They can be washed in the washing machine.

Clouds are also a collection of the elements that create life.
If seawater is our mother and our essence from which we are all came and she is the essence of creation on this planet, the essence of the matter, our Mater - mother, the clouds are something that also creates matter. They are her instruments, they carry information to long distances. Thus the Water travels because her magical ability to reside in all states of the Earth, gives her this opportunity.
Yes, the clouds are more than water in gaseous state - they have all of the elements.
And the storm also gives birth to life, because it converts things. In the interaction of water, fire, air and earth particles borns a new nature, a new material, new energy, oxygen, ozone ...

You know how beautiful is everything when the storm is over.
Therefore however it brings negative emotions and scares us, sometimes the storm is necessary.

They travel alone, but prefer to eventually meet and create more clouds and even larger clouds. When they gather in large clusters, where begin to tell their stories, then occurs accumulating a certain potential, a specific charge and electricity, and often there is born the storm, because need of balance, of change.

There they are filled with the fresh scent of the the earth and ether of the plants, pines and other conifers. There are purified.
And this water in clouds prefers to return to the virgin expanse of mountains.
Finally will take over the earth, down to the people and cities, but before it will be purified, will be alive to bear life-giving down to the plains.

To rise above the clouds it means to look down on life with an understanding of what is the nature of things. And in fact, everything is perfect ...
Everything is perfect!
