Inspired by the idea of the Ancient Romans that birds are the messengers of the Gods, I have put my own spin this tradition- giving these little doves the responsibility of carrying these meaningful words and names on their backs for the holidays.

A hand cut ceramic dove is adorned with a small wooden tag, which is hand stamped with the word or name of your choice.
(Please note the maximum length for text as shown in the images here is a total of 12 characters/spaces. If this doesn't work for the text you'd like to include, we can use a slightly larger wooden tag and do up to two lines of text.)

Order yours with a word that inspire you, or don one with the name of somebody you cherish. The perfect gift for everyone on your list- you get to choose how to customize it!

Each ornament measures about 4 inches across. Due to the handcrafted process, each one is slightly different in size and shape.

The dove is made of white clay, fired in our kiln, and finished so that it will remain beautiful for many generations to come. It is designed to become an heirloom for you and your family.

Hole at the top edge of the piece has a silky cord laced through for hanging on the holiday tree or as a decoration elsewhere in the home. This cord also holds the wooden tag securely in place.

This listing is for one ornament.
