Last night I had the privilege of participating in the service in which the baptismal bowl I made was consecrated and used for the first time. This was an unusual project for me, but I have long wanted to sculpt something that would be used by the church to enrich worship, and the opportunity to create something that would be used to baptize God’s people into his family was one I was eager to accept. The bowl is cast bronze, 19 inches in diameter and 9.5 inches deep. The limestone base was made by Hawkeye Glen, a local artisan. It was commissioned by All Saints Presbyterian Church in Austin, Texas, and it stands in their newly finished worship space.
