God Bless and Footprints
Hand built stoneware Christian decorative bowl.
The walls of the bowl represent the Holy Land, the glass Holy water or 'Water of Life' and when a small candle burns in it it can represent the 'Light of the World.'
This sculptured bowl is wonderful to help with contemplation and prayer and would also make a wonderful gift for Baptism, Christening, First Communion, Confirmation, or a really beautiful Wedding Ring Dish or a gift for an Ordination.
It looks lovely as a stand alone piece or light a tea light in it at night and the pooled glass reflects the candlelight beautifully.
I hand built this bowl, textured it and then added the detail before bisque firing. I then washed it with an oxide and painted in the detail. Two glazes were applied to give the bowl extra depth. I then fired it a second time to 1220C with recycled glass in the base which melts and pools.
It has the words God Bless stamped into the base.
Approximately: Height 5cm Width 11cm
This is not food safe. It can be washed gently using a soft cloth and mild detergent.
Each bowl I make is unique as each one is carefully and loving made and then left to the kiln to decide the final outcome.
The vessel in the photograph is the one that you would receive.
It would also be packaged as a gift as in the photos.
Footprints in the Sand.
One night I dreamed I was walking
along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that
during the low periods of my life, when I was
suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,”You promised me
Lord, that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods
of my life there have only been
one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you.”
