Holden writes..."I began making clay towers and shrines in the spring of 2011 after a trip to Mexico. Inspiration came from the colorful and creative forms found in the local artwork and architecture. Soon, my work evolved and I started making Prayer Towers."
The towers come in three sizes and each includes a hollow opening in the tower with a slip of paper to write a prayer, thought, wish or dream for someone you care about and then gift them with the tower and you special thought.
The towers are thoughtful gifts for weddings, anniversaries, graduations, valentines, birthdays, get well soon, thinking of you and they are a great way for a guy to propose!
