Cross-Pollinations & Conjurations | Book-Arts & Altar(ed) Wares
The root altare originates from Latin, implying the raising of fire to the sacred. From this devotional gesture, a sense of verticality appears, wherein the seed of intention coalesces with the flame of creation. As a result, a dynamic stream of communication awakens, a mirror image of giving and receiving, above—below, a bridge of transmission wherein the altar becomes a luminary axis-point of expression.
THE ALTAR(ED) SLATE is the literary and artistic imprint of writer, artist, and educator, Heatherlie Allison. Envisioned in 2011, she then dreamt of a convergence of the altar and the altered, the multi-métier and the multi-sensory, a body of offerings born from practice, vision, and scholarship.

“Applying a devotional approach to writing as a form of art-making, the act of creation becomes a deeply relational one—between the self and Other, or, that which moves through us. Its reach emerges boundless, beyond the altar of the page.”
