The Woman in the Tree is a story that runs through much of my work and I love making vases about her. My Grandmother and I would go on walks in the woods and she would tell me stories. My favorite story was The Woman in the Tree. My Grandmother said that long ago there was an Indian Chief who had a beautiful wife that he loved very much. Sadly she died and in his grief he decided to bury her inside of a tree. So somewhere in the woods was a hidden burial in an old tree. I would spend hours looking for her in the woods, imagining her with her face peering out of a hallow in a tree. The forest animals visiting her and her hair pouring out of the tree (because I was told that your hair keeps growing after you die).
