Muse-Creations for Our Forgive it Forward Giveaway – Because forgiveness and creativity go hand-in-hand for us, Ray and I thought it would be fun to spice up our 35-day Forgive It Forward project launch with a focus on the arts. So, we sent a call out to the muses among us for a little assist and some inspiration.
Between June 14th and July 19th, we introduced artists, sculptors, potters, musicians – and more – who forgave it forward with us by donating a gift for a random drawing giveaway. Each muse answered two questions and shared a little bit about their creative process and passion. We hope they inspire you.
Jacquelyn Allen: Potter
So, tell us Jacquelyn …
R&B: What does “forgive it forward” mean to you?
JA: They say when a person starts the process of healing the soul we help the 7 generations before us and after us. What a wonderful motivation to know that the work I do on me, to be of better service to the G-d of my understanding so I reach my highest good, is also for those I love and will love. The energy created from this action is magnanimous and the healing possibilities endless.
R&B: How do you feel pottery enriches your life and helps to heal our world?
JA: I am a potter and the feeling of co-creating with mother earth is amazing. To take the earth and mix with water to come up with a substance that can be manipulated and molded into a piece of art that can not only be beautiful but also functional is amazing. The gifting of these pieces is priceless. The time spent in the studio most therapeutic to my soul!
You can reach Jacquelyn on Facebook or contact her through The Messy Room.
