Monastic Bowl

The giant over-painted and waxed medieval monastery offering bowl. It sings of centuries of sanctity, sharing, of care, contemplation and faith. There is a feeling of constant but nothing is taken for granted. What is consistent is the light. The echo of dappled sunlight moves across the surfaces of the bowl - optimistic and pure. The simple unobtrusive bowl is full of humility and yet it is also most sacred and full of grace.
