Saint Brendan Oval Handmade Porcelain Christmas Ornament
Patron of saliors and mariners.
St. Brendan the Navigator was born in Ireland. He founded the well known Clonfort Monastery and is believed to have traveled throughout Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and Wales spreading the word of God. He is largely known for the tales of his travels found in the medieval manuscript Voyage of Saint Brendan in which he and a group of monks traveled the seas, some say even to the America's!
The unique making process of these porcelain pendants allows for more detail in designs than other mediums. These designs are fired into the clay at 1200 degrees, so they will not peel or wear off. Each piece is surprisingly lightweight.
