First there were a collection of heart stones and a pile of bricks. But there was an artist in waiting.
Now the artist (which is mom) has joined them into the Piranske končnice project. Just as the pieces themselves, the name artfully combines the town of Piran, where they were made, and panjske končnice, traditional Slovenian painted beehive panels. As it happens, “končnica” can also mean “play-off”.
When I lifted one of them, another characteristic appeared: what I thought were masterfully arranged and glued olives trickled down to the floor, and I thought I broke something. But mom just smiled: her art is alive. Nothing is fixed. Everything is possible. One just has to let it simmer and percolate. Kind of like me and my words.
