Sold. Thank you Angie!

I have named my home Woodloft because I believe anything worth owning is worth naming. The video below was taken in one of my many gardens (I'm obsessed with flowers and water ponds) which I call the labyrinth garden. I hope you enjoy viewing.

I named my burning bowl Vesta which in Roman it means 'guardian of the sacred flames.She has a stern, austere look-as though she holds fast and can conquer any situation in life. She is 4 1/2” w x 4 1/2” deep and 9” high. I created her with stoneware clay which I kiln fired along with the stained glass basin she features. I also used abalone shell and turquoise as embellishments. She is priced at $68. If you would like to purchase Vesta, please just click my e-mail. We can go from there. I prefer Paypal or checks.


The burning bowl is traditionally used as a means to rid oneself of bad habits or annoyances by writing them down on a piece of paper and burning them. Community church has a ceremony held once a year in which a very large burning bowl is used for the entire congregation. I came up with the smaller more personal bowl some time ago. When you are not using your sculpture for doing away with problems, the stained glass basin can be used for incense or the burning of a small candle.
