Thinking of my mom who passed away in July of 2011, I was inspired to use some chandelier prisms that she found for me at an estate sale. I remember when she revealed the box full of these amazing prisms! I have not seen any prisms like this anywhere or since.
My mom was "my perfect mom", and I miss her on so much and on so many levels. One thing I miss is her vision, her creativity, and her support in my vision of making devotional art bottles. She was always on the hunt for findings. Saturday, January 27th would had been her 77th birthday. So, I've kept these prisms for a long time in order to decide what should become of them. I wanted to make something that was special, that could be used in a devotional altar...a place of focus...then one day, the idea of a mandalas came to me. So from these prisms, vintage bottles, and other findings these devotional bottles were born and named.
STELLA BLUE MANDALA
This devotional piece is a cobalt blue olive oil bottle that I have had for 10 years. It is topped with a mandala of vintage chandelier prisms. Photos do not capture the heaviness of the prisms and the light they omit. This bottle stands 23 inches tall...
The price of this piece is $195
SUNSHINE DAYDREAM MANDALA
Vintage crystals and findings top this heart shaped bottle.
The price of this devotional art bottle is $175, and is 16 inches tall. (It does not include the rosary)
Clear, bright, bold and beautiful. This devotional bottle is 22 inches tall and is made with vintage deco chandelier prisms that are heavy and bold.
I have one more devotional mandala that I am going to present. I am presently adding the finishing touches and will present it on the 27th of January.
