'footpath to peace' - contemplation & peace plaque
these wall hanging plaques are about my continuing meditation practice; whereby i'm always trying to cultivate ease, peace, calmness & tranquility through daily contemplation & sitting on the cushion! each plaque wall hanging piece is cut, cleaned, measured, sanded, carved, incised with original designs, fired twice, & glazed by hand. the pieces are glazed with a beautiful white. they are strung on strong leather cord & come ready to hang. all of my glazes are non-toxic.
these are perfect for your art wall, office, door, nursery, garden nook, reading library, or any other room needing some lovely wall work in your brilliant home! these are in my studio & ready to ship.
inspired by this quote:
“Be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars; To be satisfied with your possessions; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by your admirations rather than by your disgusts; to covet nothing that is your neighbor’s except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manners; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends, and to spend as much time as you can with body and spirit. These are little guideposts on the footpath to peace.” –Henry Van Dyke
also inspired by one of my favorite artists’ directives: “Tape the sound of the moon fading at dawn. Give it to your mother to listen to when she's in sorrow.”
