Jesus and Joseph pressed clay ceramic glazed plaque and workshop tool
Vintage Pressed clay slab with matte, muted colors depicting "modern" young Jesus and his father, Joseph. The saw and auger Joseph is holding represents the carpenter along with the precious rolling horse toy made for young Jesus. Check out the teeth on the saw and auger- tools of the day. Joseph has 3-D facial hair, look into the dark brown eyes in the sunlight - the glaze is wonderful, work shirt and lines between pants to depict legs. Young Jesus is working with father in a royal blue shirt with carpenter apron and chalk. At side of Joseph is the white lily representing resurrection. 9 1/3 high, 5 1/4" wide.

OTHER PLAQUE TO PAIR: notify me before purchase and I will adjust shipping!
Monk St Francis of Assisi is make of the same pressed clay with muted, matte glazes. The hair is 3-D as well as the features of the face with deep brown eyes. The blue bird of peace/nature and the sunflower for simplicity of the fields decorate St Francis in his heavy brown robe with knotted belt as he touches the bird. I love the way the artist made the sandals on the feet - even denoting the toes. 9" high x 301/3" wide
Each thoughtful use of glazes, colors and the detailed pressed plaque base has kept these two pieces in my home for many years. Now it is time to pass on to the next generation. They have kept me humble and grounded.
