Celtic Trinity Knot

May 22, 2009

Celtic KnotI love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.

~  Roy Croft


This image is very similar to one created earlier and posted as a Triquetra.  The design has been altered and colored to be used for a wedding invitation.  The quotation and colors were chosen by the couple who are looking forward to a Celtic celebration of their marriage later this summer.  Their wedding rings show a similar design.

The drawing was done in fine point black marker and enhanced with gold and silver colored pencils.

This interlaced triquetra consists of three Vesica piscis and a circle.  Over the centuries, it’s found usage in various cultures and religions as a symbol of ‘three in one’ with the circle providing added confirmation of unity and eternity.   Personally, I see it as a design done in the Celtic style, made to represent the Christian Holy Trinity.

The almond shapes were created with a compass by overlapping two circles, the circumference of one touching the centre of the other. Knots in the braids were measured so that they begin and end similarly at the points.

elvishTolkien who wrote ‘Lord of the Rings’ was fascinated with language in both its spoken and written forms.  Elvish is one of many languages that he invented.  The written form is full of curves and wisps which adds to its credibility as a faerie script.

The calligraphy at left translates as A star shines on the hour of our meeting. 

Below is a promotional piece created for a calligraphy class.

I Corinthians

February 15, 2009


The above rendering of scripture taken from I Corinthians was made with a green calligraphy marker and fine tip black marker.  The Uncial alphabet that I’ve employed consists of a blend of what we’ve come to know as upper and lower case characters.

Paul’s advice on how we should practice loving one another isn’t easy to follow, but certainly an ideal worth aspiring to on a daily basis.  I think it’s helpful to have words of scripture framed and displayed in high traffic areas of the home to act as visual reminders to family members.
