This piece is perfect for hanging in a sunny spot or perhaps next to the kettle to consider as you begin each New Day. It is inspired by the verse in Lamentations 3:23 "His mercies are new every morning, great is Your faithfulness" as a reminder that each day is a fresh gift, a new beginning.
Throughout the 2020 pandemic I needed this cheerful reminder often as, like many others, I struggled to adjust to a new reality. This cheerful little sunshine helped me reset my focus and see the potential in each day.
The piece it made from clear glass, cut and formed into a sunshine shape. I then add the powdered, coloured glass on top and fire it in the kiln. It forms some wonderful clear glass lenses along the sun rays which allow the light to reflect across the glass, creating some truly magical effects.
Measurements: 10 x 8 cm + hanging thread. I use a rustic garden twine as the hanging thread for this piece. Each one is handmade and may contain slight variations from the image shown.
You have the choice of 2 cards with this piece, one with the verse that inspired it and one with a 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.If you're thinking of sending this piece as a gift, just include the recipients name at the checkout and add a gift message for me to include in the box.
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.
