Infinity In The Palm Of Your Hand

Alexis Savopoulos’ works of art—worlds of art—embody the spirit of William Blake’s stanza from Auguries of Innocence where he equates creative expression as being a desire “to see the World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower/ Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour…”

You see, Savopoulos, who started her career as a painter, now makes little universes that can fit neatly into the palm of one’s hand. Delicate clay sculptures of foxes, birds, deer and other forest dwellers combine with little bits and pieces of nature found in the woods by her home to create these unique works of art that revel in the beauty, purity and simplicity of the world around us. Savopoulos creates these works under the pseudonym Meadow & Fawn.
