Shrine to the present
As I was making this shrine I was thinking about food that is made for sharing tastes much better.
My thoughts were also in nature, and how when I was a kid in Brazil I thought it was a normal thing that everybody, including my family, had a bunch of ferns in their house. They were huge and everywhere!
Finally I wanted to pay tribute to birds. They are the most beautiful creatures and I feel very fortunate that I could hear them sing throughout my life.
This shrine can be used for any ceremonial purpose you see fit.
Please note that lighting candles too close to the shrine walls might stain them due to black fumes.
Red clay fired to 1830°F, underglazes and protective coating.
