"I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship" LM Alcott - Little Women
These little boats are designed to be beautiful little ornaments but they hold a powerful reminder that storms are not something to be afraid of. I really love the slightly defiant tone to this quote, the refusal to give up and the certainty that it is possible to push through and be an overcomer.
Available in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple, these elegant little boats are set in a handmade, hardwood base which is finished with oil. The type of wood will vary depending on what is available so some bases may be lighter and some darker. If you have a preference please do leave me a note.
Each boat is made from hand cut and fused glass so there may be slight variations in the shape and size but there will only be very minimal variations from the image shown.
Please note - all of the boats have a transparent and opaque sail. The transparent sail on the Green boat has a wispy effect, as shown in the photos.
Approximate measurements: 13 x 9 x 3 cm
I love to help you send a gift directly to the recipient. If this is something you would like to do I can write a message on the card that comes with the boat, just leave your message in the box provided and make sure you include the recipients address.
Meet the Maker
Fused Glass Gifts designed to encourage and inspire!
Hi, I'm Amy, designer and maker at Orchard Art Glass.
I love to create fun and colourful glass pieces in my garden studio in Somerset. On my page you will find a variety of suncatchers, candle holders, ornaments and keepsake cards. Most of my pieces begin with a word, song or verse that sparks an idea for a piece. My hope is that these visual reminders will be an encouragement to you or provide a unique gift for you to bless someone with.
Glass is a beautiful medium in it's own right before I even begin the making process. It speaks to me often about our experience as created beings. God made us and said we were good and beautiful because we are His creation. We live in a fallen world and this causes us to become broken. It is through relationship with our Maker that we are formed, refined and ultimately made beautiful. God often takes the most broken and painful pieces of our lives and works a marvellously beautiful outcome.
In working with glass I see so many parallels as it is broken, crushed, ground, shaped and sifted before being fired at temperatures of up to 800 degrees. This forming and refining process creates a beautiful, shiny, smooth and unique piece.
My prayer is that my pieces will go into homes as a gentle and joyful reminder of the hope we have in relationship with a loving God.
