Devotional Bottle / Artful Gathering Workshop

Close Up View

This is a Devotional Bottle, the first of three, I will be making during the online class at Artful Gathering taught by Zinnia whom is also the host. The base is a glass bottle layered with paper, paint and moldeling paste. The orange wrap around his neck is dyed cheesecloth. That is a handmade teeney book of wisdom hanging from his neck. The Buddha head is carved bone. Wire work and beadwork adorn the Buddha. I have a sore thumb from twisting wire and I know I need better tools. Click on the "Artful Gathering" image in the left sidebar to view all the fabulous workshops. Session two just started so registration is still open.

This. Is. Stunning.

I collect Buddhas, so this immediately caught my attention. The energy of this piece is just staggering.

Beautiful work. Really beautiful.
