Just like our Goddess sculptures, our Goddess plate activity focused on how we view ourselves and our relationship with the world around us. They are a celebration of our brilliance and a radical acceptance of who we are, now. We enjoyed the idea that it would be excellent for our self-esteem to eat from our Goddess plates.

Jaccie: Here my Goddess looks to her right, indicating that she is using the creative half of her brain and looking towards her destiny. She is hoping that her crow will protect her and warn her should death be lurking near-by. Crows have long been considered messengers of death. However, today they symbolise a new phase in someone’s life, it means that you should leave all the past behind you because something new has been born.
Christina: The inspiration comes from Fragonard's 'The Swing'. I love the original painting. In my version, it's basically about how hope springs eternal, even when things feel hopeless - and to say that we can be free in even the smallest space... in our heads or in physical reality... So my Goddess is swinging out into the future and envisioning that it will hold joy...
Carole H: I sketched it as though my Goddess was looking into a crystal ball, to see the near future. The actual plate doesn't quite show that, but it was fun to do! Not very mystical... Just me selfishly dreaming about everything I want! Sunshine, palm trees, more cuddles with my boxer dog, my wedding party, to get back learning about aromatherapy, and a chance to get dressed up to wear some bling for a change!
