Art with purpose
What our children see us respecting or disrespecting matters. What we honor, we elevate to greater importance. What we honor we try to emulate. Placing art that reverently approaches the sacred, in our homes, our schools, and our work places, broadens our cultural horizons and profoundly affects both our priorities and the practice of our values.
In trust and obedience, we comply
"Therefore, take these words of mine into your heart and soul. Bind them at your wrist as a sign, and let them be a pendant on your forehead. Teach them to your children, speaking of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest. And write them on your doorposts of your houses and on your gates, so that, as long as the heavens are above the earth, you and your children may live on in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers he would give them." Deuteronomy 11:18
Our mission statement is simple: To build the most beautiful word we are capable of building. We pray God will approve and hope you will love these works as much as we love building them. We are Mary-Anne and Hal Ivie; we live in Shingletown, California which is a small, lovely, wooded community in the foothills of Northern California and are parishioners of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Redding.Our Story
Beautiful Word Fans
From the minute I picked up the package I knew I had something special. This wall hanging is not so heavy as to cause wall damage, but heavy enough to let you know it is quality. It comes packaged like nothing I have ever seen in order to protect the work of art inside that deserves being protected. Hats off to the Ivies, and the Beautiful Word that will be proudly displayed on my wall for years to come, and handed down to my children.
