The Wernersville Wave: The landscape

Last Friday people gathered in the library of the Friends Meeting House to enter into silence before we split into our spiritual groups.  The leader asked us to think a moment about the landscape of our spirituality, I thought of riding a wave that emerged while I was in silence at the Jesuit Center.

I made a list of blog posts when I returned, but made no rush to get through them.  One by one they have merged into being here.  My return to the nightly examen has remained strong, and then there is the designs I came up with while in silence.

The one transformed into glass then travelled to Japan.

And then there is this one:

I wanted to come home from the retreat with mandala designs.  I am not sure how many I will get to, but am so glad that I was in the midst of making this when I was asked about my landscape.  The Wernersville Wave is here.  I am upon it.


  1. That design is really beautiful, Wayne.

  2. That is just so beautiful. An inspiration.

  3. I love mandalas, this one is just beautiful. And I so appreciate the analogy of one's spiritual journey to waves, even the crashing onto the beach part - safely on land, or stranded? Definately crashed :-)

    Thank you.

  4. I agree with other commenters. This is truly beautiful. I think the best part is coming home with a head full of designs, though!

  5. Valerie, Barbara, Kwee, and Snowcatcher: Thanks so much. It is a special piece and has drawn some happy eyes at shows. I hope I am in the booth when it sells, would love to know who is taking it home.

  6. Ruth--- thanks, I am so pleased that this design came to me and that I had the time to turn it into glass


Thanks for visiting Stratoz. I dig comments. Feel free to leave one here.
