The Order of the Monastic Sisters of Bethlehem of the Assumption of the Virgin and of Saint Bruno was founded in 1950 in Rome. There are 550 sisters in 30 monasteries living in 15 countries. Since 1987, at the invitation of Cardinal O’Connor, a community of monastic sisters lead a contemplative life in Livingston Manor, New York.
The Sisters of the Monastery of Bethlehem earn a living by hand painting chinaware. In decorating each piece individually, they first draw the pattern with a china pencil or with a charcoal stick over a “pouch.” After, they hand paint the porcelain pottery with fine brushes. It is then kiln fired at the Monastery.
The Sisters produce their handmade artwork in solitude, in prayer, and with love.
Each Egg Cup is individually hand-painted, slight color and design variations may occur.
