Black Bear Wish Pot
The Wish Pot is a Chinese tradition. It is believed that if you write a wish on a piece of paper, roll it up and place it into the vessel, it will come true. Good luck charms are often kept inside, as well.
The bear symbolizes mother and gentle strength. Tied with a leather cord and jasper stone; jasper is a nourishing, protective stone and creates good Feng Shui (fortune). The Eternity Knot creates a positive link between the giver and the receiver - and good Karma for both.

Carolyn Dilcher-Stutz has loved and cared for animals her entire life. She was greatly influenced by her father, a professor of Ecology, and learned the importance of stewardship of the environment, and the protection of the flora and fauna inhabiting it. People in town frequently brought young or injured wildlife to him, which he delivered home to be raised or rehabilitated.
She sculpts animal forms that adorn vessels called ‘Wish Pots’. Her larger works are in collaboration with ceramic artist Richard Aerni. Each of her works reflect respect and love for animals.
Carolyn maintains a studio in Rochester, NY.
