Hand made ceramic bowl with original poetry and detailed rendering of small bird in thorns

Underglaze with transparent overglaze. Underside glazed with ‘peacock green’.

This beautiful bowl is truly a one-off gem. Michaela has sketched out a tiny bird sitting on a thorny branch and reframes words from a poem that Chris wrote about Myrh (of all things) from an advent collection. It is always a surprise when some words a placed in a new context and find new life.


“Amongst the thorns, a bird sings

For life is not just a sum of years

It dances wild in these barren places

Where love lies.

Where you are.

So sing, beautiful creature –
