This Goddess-Sculpture (with antler  1,80m) I have made for the Goddess Temple in Glastonbury.

 Kathy Jones writes about the Lady of Avalon:

From time immemorial Glastonbury, The magical Isle of Avalon, has been home to an ancient and powerful Goddess known as the Lady of Avalon. She is Nolava of the Sacred Land, Goddess of Compassion, Healing and Transformation. She appears in the myths and legends of this place in the Sisterhood of the Nine Morgens. The most famous of whom was Morgen la Fey, the faerie half-sister to King Arthur. She is remembered as Maiden Bridie, Goddess of healing, poetry and smithcraft. She is the Great Mother Madron or Modron.  She can be seen on misty mornings in the form of Rhiannon, the White Mare from the Seas.  She is the Old Woman, the Crone of Avalon stirring Her Cauldron of Transformation of Creativity, Death and Rebirth.She is the Lady of the Lake Lady of the Holy Springs and Wells.

“Mother Hulda”

goddessart-Holle ohne Hintergrund


Her name means the
Radiant.
Every child in our land knows her storys : As Queen of Heaven, she rules over the elements, the weather, the seasons. The Teutons told each other that the sun shines when she combs her hair; the world is shrouded in fog when she is cooking; it rains when she washes her veils and snow falls when she shakes out her beds. At the same time, people worship in her the goodness of Mother Earth and the Radiant light of Heaven. Holla also lives in the caves as Hel, the earth goddess, inside the mountain. Fountains, ponds and springs lead to their realm in the Underworld. The Goddess was worshiped and celebrated in these holy places.

Marija Gimbutas names Hulda (or Holda, Holla, Holle) as having originally been an ancient Germanic supreme goddess who predates most of the Germanic pantheon, including deities such as Odin, Thor, Freya, and Loki, continuing traditions of pre-Indo-European Neolithic Europe.[6]
As Christianity slowly replaced Scandinavian paganism during the Early Middle Ages, many of the old customs were gradually lost or assimilated into Christian tradition. By the end of the High Middle Ages, Scandinavian paganism was almost completely marginalized and blended into rural folklore, in which the character of Frau Hulda eventually survived.

My Goddess Ceramic Sculpture is 175 cm and has a Radiant Wreath of Elder flowers (made of glass) and also on the body I have integrated Elder flowers (5 leaves) and Fruits everywhere. The golden Apple in her hand also shows her as Guardian of the sacred Apple Orchard (like some other Goddesses too).

                                “ BORBETH”

goddessart-sonnengöttin

The Celts named their Sun Goddess SULIS, in Germania she was called SUNNA, and in Norway SOL. In Britain she was revered on Silbury Hill, the famous man-made mound within the Avebury megalithic site.

Here she bore the eons from her big womb-barrow which is almost 40 metres high and has a diameter of more than 160 metres.

In Austria, this sun form was the closest to Borbeth, one of three Bethen.

This ceramic sculpture is 187 cm high, constructed in two parts from clay. It was fired three times. On the third occasion, a wide variety of lustres were burned, including a 24-carat gold and a platinum lustre.

Price: 14.000 €

 “MARI”
 

 

“Mother of the sea” the great fish borne by the gods….

I constructed this ceramic sculpture by hollowing, then fired it twice at a higher temperature so that it could also be used as an open-air fountain statue. (A fountain pipe is installed on its interior)

The fishtail and the headdress partly consist of ceramic mussels into which lustres were burned.

The other parts consist of a luxuriously worked glass mosaic made from blue and green opalescent glass.     165 cm   Price :  12.000 €

 

 

 

 

 

“OSTARA”

 Ostara ohnen Hintergrund

 

An Anglo-Saxon goddess: Ostara or Eostre . Her holy month was called Eastre-monath, the moon of the Eostre. Our Easter was an old spring festival of sacrifice, and is still dependent on the old lunar calendar – it falls on the Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox.

My goddess is decorated with flowers and a lot of gold spirals – an old symbol of rebirth. Her head is crowned by a crescent, a mark of all ancient goddesses, because it reflects the female cycle.

I constructed this two-part, 135cm-tall ceramic sculpture by hollowing, then fired it three times. On the third firing I applied 24 carats of gold lustre. Price:  9500  €

“MERMAID”

The German Fairies of the Water are similar to the Greek “Nereides”.

In mediaeval times the same characteristics have been attributed to them like their close kinswomen, the mermaids, sirens, wilis and fairies of water:

They lured unfortunate sailors into the water and devoured their souls in a magical

way.

The fishtail and headgear are partly composed of ceramic shells, burned in lustre.

The other parts are moulded in glass.

goddessart-Cernunnos

Cernunnos is the name of an old Celtic God.

He wears a golden antler and represents the male in Nature. He is a guardian and defender of the forest, his animals and of all other beings, of course.

I constructed this 95cm-tall ceramic sculpture by hollowing, fired it twice and glazed it. Price :  8500 €
