"Tarot cards are a mysterious deck of cards hundreds, maybe even thousands of years old. Their origin is unknown, however decks have survived from 15th century Europe and are the direct descendants of modern playing cards.
The major Arcana or 22 Trump cards are numbered in a sequence and appear to tell a picture story of a journey. The Fool and his companions are Jungian archetypes and are the same strange creatures encountered in dreams that universally evoke thoughts and feelings much like myths and fairy tales. The journey represents travels through life; how each one of us reacts to, confronts and avoids life's lessons. This journey can be repeated time after time as we identify with or stay stuck in a particular pattern. As we come to know The Fool and his friends, perhaps we can make the voyage a bit faster and a lot more fun.
For many years I have been interested in the Tarot and even occasionally read the cards. As I worked with the images on the cards I began to see each one of them with a distinct and unique personality. My Tarot sculpture grouping developed intuitively about 10 years ago. I was making a series of abstract sculptural forms in glass for about six months before I realized I was actually creating individual personalities from the Major Arcana. It has taken 10 years to complete all 22 images."
