A friend was concerned about the candle holder that his class had to carry to take the pray candle to church at a local Catholic school.
I offered to make a more suitable piece. This is the result.
Hand carved. The wood is a generic hardwood. Flame blackened. Oiled and waxed.
Peter, my friend, was ecstatic. His wife was so impressed she has asked for another to be made as a gift to the departing priest.

What a wonderful gift! Good work. I have been building Prie Dieux for the priests at my parish as a Lenten discipline over the last few years. It is a great feeling to build something and have it appreciated. Keep it up!
