Ceramics- Lantern Project
John 9:5- As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
Japanese stone garden lanterns reflect ancient Pagoda design, which consists of a base pedestal, a platform for the firebox, the firebox, and the roof. Japanese lanterns were originally placed around Buddhist temples and shrines. Later they were introduced by tea masters to guide guests through gardens to the tea ceremonies that were held in the evenings.
Today, garden lanterns are not only used in the Orient but have become part of our western culture. We use these beautiful natural looking structures as decorative accents for patio entrances, garden pond areas, to add harmony and balance or as a focal point in a specific spot in a flower garden. A candle or oil lamp can be placed in the firebox as a decorative element or to give light in a walkway.
