This is an actual placenta print made with various types of paint (acrylic, watercolor).  We wanted to tell the story of Stella’s birth which was on a warm, blustery summer night.  “Stella” obviously means “stars.”  She was born in August and poppies represent that month.  Out side the door of their house two swallows were nesting and the chicks had just hatched.  It was a magical birth!

This is another commission I just finished for a wonderful midwife. She wanted to incorporate a pregnant figure pendant her preceptor had given her, a nursing mama, a “squishy baby,” a placenta/tree of life, and a pink lotus.

Any suggestions for a title?

See how it was made!

This is actually a preliminary sketch for a belly cast I’ve been commissioned to do. This will be the central piece on the belly, then a tree will go around it with the branches spreading over the breasts. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!The inside piece is a labyrinth that I thought looked just like a placenta. The finished cast will have the labyrinth raised in acrylic and molding medium so you can trace it with your fingers.

Many midwives think that the placenta looks like a tree of life.  It’s interesting to think that every person on the face of the earth has been inside a mother, shared a placenta.  I’ve been worried about my anemia lately and there’s something about how strong and vigorous the placenta is that appeals to me.  The fact that a woman’s body is capable of growing an entire organ from scratch that nourishes another life and consists of so many nutrients, especially iron, is amazing to me!
