Two Wishes "Jade" Wish Keeper
Now Available! Shop now at MyAmericanCrafts for this exquisite "Two Wishes Jade Wish Keeper" by Matthew Lovein Raku.
Matthew Lovein’s signature piece, called the Wish Keeper™ is his original design and concept which first began in 1992. The artist's wife, Mary explained, “He woke me in the night and said, ‘I’m going to make a Wish Keeper™. I’ve seen it in a dream’.” The dream showed the vessel which sits on a distinctive base and has a lid formed like bamboo, representing strength and flexibility. When lifting the lid a silk cord is revealed with an inner chamber that holds a parchment with your written wish.
Brilliant "Turquoise Jade" glaze colors this tall Wish Keeper with a multicolored highlighted seal and sculpted Black Bamboo top.
The ancient symbol on the seal represents good fortune and abundance. When he first saw the symbol on the finial of a lamp, he knew it was the one that would become the Wish Keeper’s seal. Each piece is sealed by pressing the carved symbol into the wet clay, for a lifetime of good wishes.
Lift the lid of this jar and you will find two ceramic cylinders into which you can insert parchments with your dearest wishes.
Important to note that Raku Firing will produce different color variations at different times. The color of your Wish Keeper may vary based on the firing.
Stands 22" high and is approx 8.75 wide and 7" deep
