Rumi Glass Platter
The contemporary vessel, made of kiln fired glass, is deep-carved with inspirational text by Rumi, a 13th century poet, philosopher and mystic of Islam who advocated for unlimited tolerance and charity. Rumi was born on September 30, 1207 in the city of Balkh, in what was Persia at that time. His doctrine advocates unlimited tolerance, positive reasoning, goodness, charity and awareness through love. To him and his disciples all religions are more or less true. Looking with the same eye on Muslim, Jew, Buddhist and Christian alike, his peaceful and tolerant teaching has appealed to men and women of all sects and creeds. This vessel offers a great statement about how to approach life for those who are looking to express their spirituality and their faith in a common good.
Each vessel is fired twice to arrive at the free-form and non-symmetrical shapes. Every vessel is different from the next and each vessel is truly a one-of-a-kind art glass vessel.
