The Garden Gate Votive

The Garden Gate Votive

This glass votive is etched by hand and finished with a clear frosted label I printed of my watercolor “The Garden Gate”. It’s made from a repurposed condiment jar 6″ tall x 4″ diameter and comes with an LED tea light. Price includes shipping.

I etched the inside of the vase to better diffuse the light from the candle, then printed the design on a purchased frosted clear vinyl label and burnished it onto the vase. The curved glass areas are painted with forest green permanent alcohol ink.

For someone who is a gardener and spends a lot of time in her yard–what a special place! If I can’t have it in my yard, at least I can paint it. The arbor sporting ivy, the old azalea crowning the entrance and the gate, mysteriously left ajar and leading to a stone path to another part of the garden.
