I have never seen this subject mentioned on this list. Just wondering
if anyone has made any of these or that are specific in design. Would
love to see pictures if possible.

I have been commissioned to make these. I used a Weber grill lid as a mold =
for slab contrustion and threw a base. Just what the minister ordered and w=
as pleased with the outcome. I measured my kiln shelf so I could make it ha=
s large as I could. Sorry no pictures at this time.
A funny story about making the fount. The pastor was very involved in the p=
rocess and was tickled pink to see the fount and base as one piece. The gre=
enware piece was drying on the slab roller and you guessed it=3D2C he picke=
up the rim and broke off a huge piece. He was mortified=3D2C jumped to hug =
and said "Holy Shit I broke it!" He was extremely embarassed. No problem=
=3D2C made a new one and the minister has not been in my studio since.
Someone in that same church ended up tripping and breaking a edge of the fo=
nt with a huge candle holder. I had tossed the Webber grill lid but they br=
ought the fount back and I used that as the mold to make yet another one.
