Prayer Flags

prayer flags

Vitreous enamel on copper. I fired this a couple of years ago but have held on to it. It’s a memory of a certain ridge in Sikkim where I stood enthralled among ancient burial stupas. An empty place except for rock and sky, and wind-tattered prayer flags.

Recently I published memoirs of my time in the Merchant Navy: 'The Best of Days' and 'You'll See Wonders" I've a blog of poems, stories and art at:

    Excellent this one, Harry

  2. This is beautiful Harry. Is it for sale?

    • Sorry for the delay, Paul – I’ve been on a solitary week in Northumberland. Thanks for the compliment on the enamel. I want to keep this one, but I intend to explore the theme further. This size usually brings me about £26 from a local gallery.

      • No worries, Harry. Just got back from working in Finland myself, so it all worked out in the end. 🙂 I would love to own one of your pieces. If you still have any for sale I would appreciate if you could email me.

        Best Wishes,


      • This blog is a bit neglected. I should post some of the recent enamel images – if anything appeals, let me know. I’ll be in touch by email.
