Perspex Baptism / Font Bowls
Baptismal bowl designed for St Mary’s Church, Marshalswick, St Albans
In January 2008 Claudia designed a new Baptismal Bowl to replace a rather basic stainless steel one. The design incorporated the dove shape that features in the stained glass window of the church and etched wave patterns to give a sense of movement. There is a prayer that is etched around the top of the bowl— ‘ Bless this water, that your servants who are washed in it may become one with Christ, to be cleansed and delivered from all sin ’. It is like the prayer is being said over the water below, constantly around the sides of the bowl. The base has been shaped to fit the existing octagonal wooden base and the base has a non-slip insert to ensure that the bowl doesn’t slide about. The bowl was blessed and used to baptise baby Hannah on Sunday June 15th 2008.
Baptismal Bowl for Glen Community Church, Newtownards, Northern Ireland
A font/baptismal bowl was commissioned in early 2015 for a new church plant. They had their own logo and wanted it incorporated with their own phrase ' No One can enter the Kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the spirit' running around the top of the bowl. It was first used over Easter 2015.
Our font bowls are sculpted from a flat circular sheet of perspex and can incorporate any design.
