About the Bowls
Made of hardwood and painted with acrylics, a permanent drawing ink is used for the words. I may also use gold and copper leaf, metallic paints and silver & gold inks.
I am currently applying the water based finish by hand.

My Best Wishes
Ever since I can remember ...
art was always the one thing I loved doing. My father was an artist,
and it was from him that I got the sense that art was real and powerful, and could touch people.
I made the very first bowl as a gift for a friend in 1996. The word spiral was my way of wishing her all the best things in life... love hope peace joy wonder wisdom purpose devotion understanding, compassion
friendship family harmony appreciation happiness and more.
Vermont Wish Bowls began as a 'word of mouth' business that has lasted for 20 years!
Painting the bowls and adding the words that express your best intentions, is my privilege.Thank you.
The kids received the bowl on Friday and just love it.
They sent a picture and I was very pleased, so thank you so much. I was very impressed with the service you provided. Have a great week. Warm Regards,
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We received our bowl Friday and it is absolutely perfect!
I really think that my mother will love it.
She is so hard to buy for and you made it so very easy.
Thank you again for getting it to me so quickly. I will definitely be sending some additional business your way!!
