For His Glory 2.0 – January 2011
Artist Statement by Bonnie Duncan Bravo 

The "For His Glory" body of work incorporates traditional stained glass window designs as a reference to Christianity… With every piece I create, I desire to direct attention back to my Creator.

Potters and pottery are mentioned throughout the Bible, but my favorite verse comes from the book of Isaiah (chapter 64, verse 8):

“Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter, we are all the work of your hand.”

As a potter, I love functional art.  I'm excited by beautiful items that serve daily purposes in my life.  Sipping coffee out of a hand made mug enhances the morning!  As I think about the hands that created the mug and the process it went through to become both lovely and functional, I also contemplate how this process correlates to God and His creations.

As a daughter, sister, wife, and teacher, I want to be functional to God, sharing His beauty and love with others just as I want my artwork to be of service to those who use it.  …For His Glory, not mine.

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. -Psalms 37:4
