Spirit Boat: Lower World | Susan Mills


This skillfully felted fiber sculpture incorporates wool, copper and gold leaf into this Spirit Boat.  The warm glow of the metals and the red and black indicate the Lower World of consciousness.

Approximately 10″ long.

“Spirit Ships” designed to convey the soul to the place where myth begins, the place that I journey ever deeper into to bring back these powerful forms.

Creating art that evokes a half-remembered time and place where inspiration runs through every part, restoring wholeness and bringing myth to life. – Susan Mills

This piece is currently on display at Maine Craft Portland.

About the Artist

Susan Mills Studio
Bowdoin, ME

Susan Mills works with fiber and mixed media to explore her relationship to a spiritual practice that include Shamanic journeys and meditations. Susan’s current work explores 4 worlds including the Upper, Middle, Lower and Dream. In addition to these hand felted fiber and mixed media offerings, Susan teaches classes on felting and Shamanic arts.”My art making is my way of recording my inner journey and embodies my search for a new myth, a metaphor that pierces the illusion of separation by honoring and illuminating both the visible and invisible realms.  The Arthurian Myth holds such mystery for me as in integrates the feminine aspects of God with the masculine.
