"Every spirit builds itself a house, and beyond its house, a world, and beyond its world, a heaven. Know then that a world exists for you." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Carol Owen sees her Spirit Houses as protective icons of family history, "My Spirit Houses are shrines to family memories. They make sacred those shards of the past that have made us what we are."
Enshrining memories of family and home and incorporating personal mementos which celebrate the people, places, and events important to us, Carol's unique, three-dimensional assemblages honor people's most intimate histories and truest treasures.
