"All You Need Is Love"
The Dove is the International symbol for Peace and in the spirit of simplicity I created this ornament design to celebrate this season of Giving, Gratitude....and *love*.
Each dove ornament is hand cut from stoneware clay slabs and the word LOVE was stamped into the clay while it was still wet using Antique Letterpress Stamps. After it was fired the first time, I applied stains to the bisqued clay and then rubbed them off here and there to give the piece a rustic look then painted a light white glaze wash all over the Dove, signed and dated the back, and then fired it in my kiln again. I finished each ornament with a bit of Whimsy and this one has a FUNtastic and Festive Red & Green Plaid Scarf around it's neck, and a recycled swirling copper wire to hang by. The Gold button is Vintage, from a large container of wondrous Heirloom sewing sundries I inherited when my Gramma passed away a few years ago, and now it graces this Gentle Peace Dove.
This unique and wondrous "LOVE" ornament measures 5" across and hangs at 4" with the wire.
Simple. Whimsically Elegant. Peaceful. This ornament stretches across seasons and can be hung not just on your Holiday tree but anywhere in your home, office/workplace or even your car, bringing a little Joy, Peace and Love year round!
*´♥.•PERSONALIZED? YES!! I would be honored to write a little message for you on the back of this Lovely Ornament. It can't be too long, something like: "Holiday 2012" or "Smith Family 2012" would "fit" just Perfect! Please leave a message in the note to seller when you purchase the ornament, or feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this!
