Bronwyn Berman’s pennant is burning with love!
‘love is the answer’
bound with golden thread to the root of a river she-oak
exquisite edges
the point
the other side
floating letters knotted with golden thread
the burning edge of the back of the seam
the other side of the point
Bronwyn’s pennant is burning with love meeting the gathering
thank you my fabulous friend!
Bronwyn’s talisman keeping an eye out for the dream

    Burning love ………….. can feel the love all the way over the oceans………

      (((Martine))) as Isabel Allende wrote in her latest book ‘In the Midst of Winter’ ;
      “It’s not the force of gravity that keeps the universe in balance, but the binding power of love.”

  2. Marti says:

    Startling in its execution, and because it is rendered so beautifully, Bronwyn’s statement making pennant is a magnificent addition to the Gathering.To see the delicate exquisiteness of this shiny satin pennant juxtaposed with the singed edges, the fire-cut letters is to come to know that in order for Love to be the answer, we need to be fierce in our beliefs, while at the same time holding to that sensitivity that connects us all…

  3. Fiona says:

    How fabulous! And I love the ‘burnt out bits’ being used on the other side – so wonderful to be able to read it both ways – a real stunner! What a gathering…

  4. Liz A says:

    Such a wonder, these marks wrought with fire, letters threaded into gold-knotted truth

    Inspired to know more, I journeyed to Bronwyn’s website and in her portfolio found a kindred work in the Burnt Gnomic Spiral … and so much else besides (Divided Moon especially spoke to me)

    Thus it is I continue to be amazed … how each pennant brings a new voice to the Gathering

  5. Beth says:

    Oh…. It’s wonderful. And isn’t it amazing how that satin takes the light.

    i’ll start on mine soon

    What a great juxtaposition of opposites! The positive and negative bits and spaces, the calm shine of the cloth with the delicate burnt edges, the hemmed edge with the raw…I especially like the way it fits with and stands out from the group. Doesn’t the shape remind you of a scimitar blade? Definitely fierce, but literally open as well. A beautiful contribution, Bronwyn.

  8. fiberels says:

    Ahhhhhh Mo … love the contrast between the smoothness of the fabric and the
    “roughness” of the burned edges !!!
    Another beauty for you !

  9. bronwyn says:

    Thanks for the great pics Mo, and to everyone who has contributed thoughts on the burned pennant, it’s wonderful to have your insights, thank you.

    Another Amazing personal artistic journey of expression … Beautiful!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Tina))) Bronwyn is such an inspiration, her pennant is a shapeshifter holding the elements of air and fire with such deep love for our beautiful broken world.

  11. Brilliant in execution, simplicity and power. The comment thread is too. WOW

  12. Hazel says:

    How?!? & Wow! Simplicity bound, and glowing, with brilliance.

  13. Barry says:

    MC – wow – that is one piece of delicate work – controlling the burn was a real feat. Great connection between the content and the design implementation. You have a real stash of pennants now. Go well. B

    Medium-defying. Shiny. Assertive and yet gentle. How you make satin look like sheet metal is a mystery to me!

  15. Marti says:

    Burning Love, Dreaming of Love, Love as an Answer. Toss Love into a body of water and it ripples out in connection. Last week, (I finally remembered where I read this) the British newspaper The Guardian interviewed one of our country’s best writers, who also happens to be a theologian, Marilynne Robinson. When asked ” what simple thing she believed would make the world a better place” , she replied, “:Loving it more.” Like minds Mo, like minds…

  16. Such beautiful work arriving at your door Mo. The comments above say everything there is to say . . . Bronwyn’s contribution is exquisite.

      (((Wendy))) as the humanitarian aid worker Carl Wilkens wrote “When we make something with our hands, it changes the way we feel, which changes the way we think, which changes the way we act.”
