Inspired by the verse "His mercies are new every morning, great is Your faithfulness" this bright and cheerful glass sunshine is a reminder that every new day is a gift and it is full of hope.
Throughout the 2020 pandemic I regularly needed to remind myself that each day is fresh start. No matter what had passed the day before, whether tears, shouting, frustration or difficulty, I could face each new day with a new plan and a fresh reminder that God is faithful, regardless of our circumstance.
This piece uses a slightly unusual technique of cutting thin strips of glass and turning them up on end. I then powder the colours over the clear glass. The way the glass forms in the kiln causes clear lenses to remain along the sunbeams which cast wonderful light shadows across the surface of the glass. This piece is incredibly simple to look at yet magical as the light hits it.
It is a freestanding piece and is perfect for placing in a windowsill or on a shelf. Why not place a jar candle behind it for a completely different interaction of light with the glass?
Measurements: 13 x 10 cm with a 5 cm curve depth. Each piece is handmade and may have slight variations to the image shown.
I have 2 gift cards available with this piece. One includes the verse that inspired it and the other has a favourite quote from the book "Anne of Green Gables" "Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it" by L M Montgomery.
I love to help you gift my pieces by sending them directly to a recipient. Just leave their address at the checkout and include a gift note with your choice of card.
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.
