An unnamed presence
showed up at my door not long ago.
She insisted on being formed
with low-fire clay and casually ignored warnings
of my limited experience in that medium.
I frankly described my one (and only) previous attempt
ending up as pieces in the bottom of a kiln.
She was not deterred.
This was the result.
is an Italian name meaning
The bearer of news.
I'm to create others like her
to be used as Prayer Bowls.
A thought, wish, or prayer might be written
and tossed inside to be carried out into the Universe.
Annunziata is made from low-fire white clay.
She has been painted with acrylic and sealed.
The holes are for possible bead work in the future.
She measures approximately 6"x 6"
