I am Penny Hall,
hand sculpted leather artist…also known as
“the blessing bowl lady”
The Blessing Bowl Lady, that’s me. The first one was created in 2003 as a therapy project when I was diagnosed as legally blind. I did not want the word “blind” to stick in my subconscious. After donating the second one to an auction where it brought a surprising amount of money my art career was born.What is a blessing bowl? It is a container to hold all the good things in life. My journey through multiple eye surgeries and life changes taught me to stop looking for the worst in life. I learned to shift my focus to see all the good things and count my blessings daily. The blessing bowls are my ambassadors to remind their owners to look for the blessings in their life.
