Values in Alignment

Each letter of our alphabet may represent a unique sound, but each symbol in Japanese Kanji depicts an entire word or concept. With this meditative, outdoor string of Tibetan-inspired prayer flags, artist Jennifer Utsch spells out essential values that are treasured the world over. Utsch carefully cuts each elaborate symbol from recycled steel, and gives each a color that seems to suit its energy. "Health" is a vibrant green; "Faith" is pure white. The metal flags are suspended from a chain, alternating with traditional Noah bells from India, which are said to sooth the spirit with their gentle chiming. Tibetans believe that their prayer flags allow the wind to carry the good will of their messages as a blessing on the world. Makes a thoughtful and inspiring addition to your outdoor decor. Handmade in India and California.

Artist Jennifer Utsch has always been passionate about art and creating. Seeing promise, her high school teacher, urged her to enroll in art school. Like so many, Jennifer never believed there was a future for her in art; so, she veered in the opposite direction and graduated with degrees in Spanish and International Relations. She pursued careers in Law Enforcement, Firefighting and Real Estate.

Eventually, she found her way back to her first love in art. Wanting to work with people and the environment, Jennifer began to envision how she could make the interconnections of these passions into her life's work.

Now, she collects "trash" and makes it "work" for her; it is in this simplicity that creates beauty and allows new ideas to flow.
