Saint Fiacre Oval Handmade Porcelain Christmas Ornament
Patron of gardeners, florist and cab drivers.
St. Fiacre developed a special skill for gardening while being raised in a monastery in Ireland. Soon after he was ordained, Fiacre moved to France where Bishop Faro granted him a large lot of land to garden. He grew a beautiful variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs. With the herbs and his healing hands, Fiacre was able to cure all manner of disease. The Bishop declared Fiacre's garden to be a miracle and it became a pilgrimage site for those seeking healing.
The unique making process of these porcelain pendants allows for more detail in designs than other mediums. These designs are fired into the clay at 2200 degrees, so they will not peel or wear off. Each piece is surprisingly lightweight.
