Namaste Wall Hanging - Handmade Rustic Zen Stamped Flower, Dragonfly Plaque - Peace Full Welcome Sign, Housewarming Gift
What a peaceful and beautiful word.
It represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us.
It is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another, or, put another way: "The LIGHT in me honors the LIGHT in you"....
This beautiful tile wall hanging is made from rolled out stoneware clay that has been hand stamped with a vintage textile blocks from India that are about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!), as well as some Vintage Letterpress stamps for the Butterfly's, Dragonfly and word "NAMASTE". You can see some of the Vintage stamps in the last Thumbnail photo, aren't they Cool? Just Imagine all the type they printed in old Newspapers and such before they came to work with me in Clay! :)
I have applied stains to the bisqued clay and then rubbed them off here and there to give the piece a rustic look, then I added a few colored glazes to accentuate the stamped design including the little BlueBird of Happiness in the Doorway of the "house"! It has been fired a second time for durability and strength to create an inspiring piece that can be hung indoors or outside in a protected area. The hanger is made from recycled copper wire and strung with tiny glass beads of varying colors.
The hanging is 7" long including the copper wire and 9 1/2" wide and is signed and dated on the back by yours truly.
