Always (in Sand)
Letterpress printed on handmade paper, The Always Print contains the words “I will always be your child. You will always be my mother. Forever and Always." and each signed print comes with a letterpress card that includes the full story of how this print came to be (see photo for entire text). The card is wrapped in another sheet of beautiful, deep green, handmade abaca paper with the word ALWAYS embossed on the front.
The Inspiration for the Print:
The best part about what we do is creating pieces that allow us to feel connected to others. A few weeks back, as my mom and I were cooking dinner and discussing motherhood, I shared a story with her about a tender moment of realization I had tucking my own daughter, Emolyn, into bed. She was going through a phase where she was concerned that I might not always be around:
‘What will happen when you’re gone?’, Emolyn wondered.
It was a powerful moment for me because it led me to an understanding that has helped me feel more rooted in the universal truth of what it is to be a mother. Whether you are a biological mother, an adoptive mother, and/or a chosen mother you are tied to your child for eternity— no one and nothing can take that bond away from the two of you. What a powerful, love affirming fact.
This is a simple print, with so much care put into it, and just the right details. We hope it will be one that you can share with your mother so that she can be reminded of your connection daily.
