We sat and discussed the engraving that might go on to each bowl for some time, deciding that there would definitely be baptismal related images along with a dedication to Fr Terry Murnane the local Vicar of the parish who sadly died last year.
The dedication to Fr Terry would be on both bowls with lots of symbolism which would remind us of him and also have a great deal of meaning for baptism.
Before I could start designing the the bowls I needed to decide on which size and shape of bowls I would use. The bowls would need to fit in with the shape and depth of the stone fonts so I had to look at all of the options.
One option was to have bespoke bowls hand blown to fit he shape of the fonts but that would have been expensive on its own and would have taken up too much of the budget so my second option was to purchase two ready made bowls which I could use as a blank canvas for the engravings.
