The limited edition of Woodland Queens is now SOLD OUT. The impressively glowing vessel, with its elegant and delicate aspen trees, speaks of cooperation, leadership, generosity, support of one another (particularly in the ‘storms’ of our lives), modeling of the highest personal, community and corporate integrity; and inspiration for one to fully and simply always stretch for the Light. The edition size was 28 – adding the numbers 1 through 7 to total 28. Seven has long been a favorite number for Carol signifying creative perfection connecting the spiritual and temporal realms. The aspen tree is a marvelously wise and soulful teacher – Woodland Queens is a stunningly marvelous mirror of these exceptional qualities. A special thank you to our many valued collectors who have made this edition so successful.
