ARTISTS

"Hands touching clay, I am truly alive. Soul, spirit, body, connected.  I appreciate how hand made clay forms speak to us as we eat, drink, and view the world around us."

--SMM

Susan and Cathi's clay dinnerware is created especially for Good Mourning Cafe. Clay from the earth further connects us to the food we eat and invites gratitude for the planet we inhabit.

The unknown is full of infinite possibilities; something always comes from nothing. Good Mourning Cafe began with emptiness, a neutral zone where most everything was uncertain. As I spoke with others about both the  pain and beauty of my experiences with death, they began to share their own. It was healing. More importantly after several encounters it seemed a normal topic of conversation,more a curious than taboo subject.

 

For this project I will draw from my knowledge as a therapist, artist, and mourner. Together in community we will facilitate the necessary paths to healing through the sharing of art, food and experiences using sensitivity, compassion, curiosity and sometimes even a sense of humor.
