Magma Chamber Mandala Art Card
$4.95 – $5.95
Magma Chamber mandala art card commemorates the summer of 2022 in all its smoking hot glory. This square card is 5.25″ by 5.25″, a nice little size for giving, framing, or meditation. An ecologial statement, yes, but also an especially nice card for a summer birthday greeting. Meditate on this mandala when you’d like to amp up your energy, creativity, and personal power.
Includes envelope and free shipping. If you’ll be mailing your card to someone and would like me to add the correct USPS first class stamp to the envelope, please choose that option from the menu. An additional charge will apply.
Magma Chamber mandala art card is digitally printed using archival pigment inks on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. The print quality is truly something to see; the paper is truly something to feel. Folded card is 5.25" by 5.25" and comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The photograph I used to create this mandala art is printed on the back of the card with the photo location. Interior of the card is blank and the paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.
Framing. This art card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.
Postage. Because irregularly shaped mail, like this square card, must be canceled by hand, the U.S. Postal Service requires extra postage to deliver them. Special "butterfly stamps" carry the exact right postage to mail your card within the U.S. If you would like me to stamp the envelope with a butterfly stamp so it's ready for you to mail, please choose that option from the menu.
About the Art. I created this art piece, titled Magma Chamber, while completing an online course covering the geology of the U.S. National Parks. So many of our parks, especially those out west, are volcanic in nature. As I worked my way through 36 lectures, I was exposed to almost endless craters, calderas, and, most importantly, animations of magma chambers forming deep in the earth. I took the course as an escape from brutally hot and humid weather that made my day job at a greenhouse almost (okay, beyond almost) unbearable. When I decided to create a new mandala, I was naturally drawn to hot colors and chose a photo of a bright orange daylily as the kernal of my new piece. Magma chambers appeared immediately in this piece, dozens of them almost exactly as portrayed in the course I was taking. In the finished piece, they're feeding a pool of liquid fire at center.
This mandala is a commemoration of my own personal summer of '22, but with climate change in full upswing everywhere, there's a more universal statement here. That being said, I'm adding it to my environmental catacylsm series. Beyond the ecological connection, this piece carries the powerful energy of self-actualization and is a good pick when trying to tap more deeply into your creative potential. You can read more about this artwork in the essay I posted to introduce it.
