UU Chalice with Hands Image for Word Art

The following image was originally designed for a New England Leadership School t-shirt.  Featuring the hands of the Rev. Amy Freedman and Peter Bowden, this image has become a favorite graphic and basis for making UU word art.

    An image Amy Freedman and I made years ago for a t-shirt has resurfaced as the basis for Unitarian Universalist Word Art! This post shares the original image and website for making your own.

    1. Hello Peter – A Colorado UU here – wondering if I could use the Chalice/Hands image for a new flag design, etc. for my church in Loveland. I am a professional artist/designer/illustrator. I’d use it at the center of a new Summer/Winter Solstice design and make it available somehow to other UU’s to use. Can also send you the design for approval if you’d like. Thanks and blessed be… Trish
