Butterfly Dance

Butterfly Dance

Christine Rowen Wyard

Antique glass, acid etched, painted, silverstained and enamelled The panel results from this description by Clarissa Pinkola Estes of the Butterfly Dance, a ritual fertility dance performed yearly in New Mexico by Butterfly Woman: ˜She is old and substantial¦ her back is the curve of the Earth with all its crops and foods and animals. The back of her neck carries the sunrise and the sun". I aim here to convey a sense of the vivid, shimmering images experienced in the ritual, visionary state using broad strokes of colour formed by brushed-wax acid etch, stain and enamels. The major influences on my work are the wild landscape of my Exmoor home, and my love of medieval glass, colour and dance.
