Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow Bowl - I Carry Your Heart - e. e. cummings Quote Ring Holder Dish for Anniversary, Vow Renewals Ceremony

{the Ring Bearer Bowl's particulars are below under "HEART-FULL INFORMATION"}}

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

The "I CARRY YOUR HEART" Dish measures about 5 3/4" across, 6" down and is about 1/2" deep {although the "heart ends" come up to about 1"!}. It is made from rolled out stoneware clay that has been hand cut and formed in the shape of a Heart and then stamped with Antique Letterpress stamps for the words. The "Double Heart" was stamped using a Vintage textile block from India that is about 100 years old (and carved out of pear wood!) and you can see the Awesome Detail of it closeup in the last thumbnail photo.

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 painted Black glaze to accentuate the stamped letters and a mottled Gold and Deep Red glaze for the Heart. The underside of the dish is the same Wondrous and Loving Deep Red and it is signed and dated by yours truly.

*´♥.•NOTE~Please Remember: these dishes made Completely by Hand, start to finish, not a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on....that's what makes this Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!

This little dish is so precious and heartfelt and it will look fabulous in any room in your house after the Wedding is a Wondrous Memory: the bedroom holding jewelry; the bathroom holding hairpins; the kitchen or dining room holding wrapped candy or perhaps a candle or incense; the office holding paper clips. OR>>>it can be hung on the Wall!!
