This is a very special piece that I made as a commission for a very dear person, Lezlie Laws. To make this piece I met with her and gathered some pages from books that were relevant to her, some of her own handwriting and, if you look closely you will see maps of Kyoto, the words Mentor, Writer, Meditate, Yogi, the word Joy in Japanese, and antique mother of pearl Buddha. 

I found so much joy in making this piece. I love the challenge and process of making custom pieces. These pieces are a wonderful gift to yourself, a loved one, a dear friend, a wedding gift, a memory of a special event, or of a loved one who has passed. Think about a place you visited, words that are especially relevant to you, your favorite books, your favorite colors, etc. all of these can be incorporated into a piece with joyful flowers to look at everyday. 

I invite the opportunity to make a special piece for you! Please contact me and I would be happy to speak with you in more detail to ensure you receive a piece you would cherish forever or a piece to give as a gift to a very special person in your life.
