Jersey Devil Bottles on Etsy

The first five editions of the Jersey Devil Bottle Collection Project that I have been working on are finally listed at my Etsy page. The idea of this project is a bit unique, providing a way to recycle and clean the Pine Barrons at Leeds Point and promote the history of the land. I am sure most everyone has heard of the Jersey Devil, the winged creature that has been tormenting the Garden State and the Pine Barrons for almost Three centuries. This line of OOAK bottles was created to pay homage to this mysterious creature. Each bottle that is used as the base material of the sculpture has been discovered and rescued from Leeds Point, where in 1735 Mother Leeds gave birth to a 13th child, the famed Jersey Devil that escaped into the fabric of of Americana.

Lovely Death So Pure

The raven sits on the corner
Devouring flesh
Removing sins long forgotten
Embracing the world within its eyes
A spiral tunnel filled wth red
Streams of life cascade down the cliff
The hopes of man die
Fading inside a mind void of passion
Craving only a heart blackened by night
Blood stains the sidewalk
Scarlet tears left by those lost
Left by the victims of deceit
Lovely death so pure
A dark heart set free
The savior moves on
Another sacrifice complete

Something a bit different from me, written as part of a gift for my mother who was visiting this weekend.

Somewhere beyond the vast horizon
Across the violent seas or outside the Heavens above
I take comfort in knowing you will be there
For years, your presence was taken for granted
Yet, behind the scenes you were there
Waiting quietly with heartfelt love
Simple feelings held deep within the meaning of a single word
Within a life meant to shape everything known
Everything that could be
Within a Mother
As the world outside changes and unseen enemies rise
As families, grow older and distant phone calls become commonplace
You persist steadfast and resolute
Continuing to Shape the future generations as you have shaped your children
And now continue to help shape your grandchildren
Therefore in my heart and in the hearts of all you have touched
By that cherished name you will endure
You will forever be my and our Mother
