Star DustLotus - Wooden Offering - Meditation Bowl by andromeda Star DustLotus - Wooden Offering - Meditation Bowl by andromeda
You can use this bowl for your offerings or for meditations.
When I wake up each morning, I love putting my favorite stones, or just the stones that appeal to me that day in the bowl so that I can have them near me at my work station or desk. I do the same thing at night, putting stones, or small mementos in the bowl near my bedside, for mediation, healing, or for remembering.

I hand burned the Lotus design into the bowl. The glass cabochon in the center is hand fused, it has sparkling Dichroic rainbow colors. There are also 5 Garnet stones set into the design.

I love designing with the Lotus. I love it's meaning and it's beauty!
Throughout many cultures over time, the Lotus has been a powerful image and a spiritual symbol. In Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian religions, the lotus is considered a sacred flower. Among it's many meanings and significance, the lotus is a symbol of "spontaneous" generation, and so it also represents divine birth, spiritual development and creation itself.

This is a natural wood bowl that I found at a thrift shop which I have lovingly re-purposed, so there is a little wear on the bowl, but no cracks or major imperfections, I believe it is Teak wood.

You can find my creations for sale on my website www.beadworx.com
