The world holds so much beauty–waterfalls and lakes, mountains and flowers. As Gerard Manley Hopkin’s poem, “God’s Grandeur” states,
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
For a person to create anything of beauty, however, takes time, and learning to make something beautiful could take a lifetime. Nevertheless, the endeavor is a wonderful effort. Here are my two newest efforts, a lotus bowl and a bowl and plate for a friend’s baby. It’s a pale reflection of God’s grander but made with the hope that it is a small reflection of my love for that greater beauty.
