Love, everlasting and trueLove$33.00Description
“The posture and profile of this piece is somewhat iconic. It speaks about a love so strong that it continues on beyond a lifetime. The words ‘everlasting and true’ express the idea that love can go beyond death. The rose stem gradually blends into her body, so there's no separation between the object that she’s holding and her body. I wanted the whole figure to be a symbol of love, not just the rose.”

a presence of life and lightTree Silhouette$32.00Description
“This piece reflects my love and reverence of trees — their graceful, columnar, beckoning, magical qualities. They have so much character and gesture. When I look up at the canopy of trees in the sunlight, the leaves look dark and lacy — a silhouette of beautiful shapes where the light comes through. I like to look at the delicate patterns created.
I wanted to create a two-dimensional tree silhouette, but one that was animated and alive with images of birds, leaves, pomegranates — symbols of life and light. This pierced-metal tree can be used as an architectural element in the Nativity or with The Christmas Story. I hope it adds an interesting detailed pattern to the scene."
Crèche for the Nativity
The Crèche is designed to display the classic Nativity collection.
While simple in architectural detail, the Crèche has meaning built into its very design. The piece has a regal, stately appearance, yet is constructed from humble materials of barn wood and nails. The structure’s proportions also suggest the size and shape of the cross, while its rusty nails foretell the crucifixion. The Crèche intimately shelters the Holy Family, then opens wide to welcome shepherds and travelers from afar.

Crèche for the Nativity
Submitted by Sarah Kelly in Ireland, January 2014
Hi Susan, My name is Sarah, I live in waterford in Ireland!! I just turned 30 in December and I have always loved Christmas and decorations in general! I like to decorate for Halloween, Easter, and Christmas. I bought my first house (with my boyfriend) about 7 years ago and our first Christmas in our house was so exciting! After buying a Christmas tree I wanted to buy a 'Nativity Crib' but I am quite fussy! I like clean lines and I live by a 'less is more' life style. I saw this Creche in a window in a jewelers in Waterford and I bought it straight away! This was about 3 years ago and it's still my favorite Christmas decoration. I also bought the shepherd, animals, the three wise men and of course Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus. (I didn't buy these items altogether as honestly I couldn't afford them together but this year i finished my set with the Three Wise Men. Kind Regards SarahRead More >
