Ornaments

brotherjude.jpgA master craftsman, Br. Jude Schmitt enjoys his woodworking and still considers that to be his favorite medium. However, as he collaborated recently with a few ladies from the Abbey Development Department, the ladies were successful in getting him to consider a new adventure; using acrylic sheets to design beautiful Christmas ornaments in addition to some wooden ornaments. You will find many different designs, all created by Br. Jude. The intricate details of the pieces and the image of light reflecting on those details, puts the thought of the joy and blessings of Christmas with all its wonder in one’s mind. As Br. Jude began experimenting with this material, he quickly became a fan as he noted “there’s a lot less dust involved!” We hope you will enjoy the beauty of his creations on your tree this Christmas season or that you find excitement in giving these items as gifts to your friends and love ones.
