This pattern is found carved in stone at Meigle in Perthshire, Scotland. It is created from one continuous line, which represents eternity, fidelity, and unity to a thought, person or idea. The inner pattern consists of four triquetras, each triquetra represents one of the four seasons. A triquetra represents the three forces of nature: earth, air and water. The symbol was later used by the Christians to symbolize the holy Trinity which made it easier to integrate Christian and pagan beliefs. The circle which encompasses the pattern symbolizes the sun, also worshiped by the druids.
Our suncatchers delight all year round: hanging in a window or from a tree in your garden, they look beautiful and bring a smile or memory to whom ever gazes upon them.
This ornament makes a great gift for friends or yourself. Approximately 4.25" in diameter and a quarter inch thick, weighing 4 oz or more, these are heavy as one would expect from a quality piece.
The glass is individually hand pressed from molds that are engraved in relief. Individual variations such as bubbles and shear marks occur naturally in the process of gathering the glass, distinguishing each as handmade.
Each suncatcher comes in our gloss white Mission Glass Works Gift box.
