Trained as a poet and ordained as a Buddhist monk, Leonard Cohen (1934–2016) is our patron saint of sorrow and redemption. He wrote songs partway between philosophy and prayer.
One of his most beloved lyric lines, from the song “Anthem” — a song that took Cohen a decade to write — remains what is perhaps the most meaningful message for troubled and troubling times: “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” It springs from a central concern of Cohen’s life and work, one which he revisited in various guises across various songs.In dark times, poetry and music often become more important to us, providing the kind of transcendence we need to interpret painful events in a wider context. And Cohen wrote “Anthem,” one of his most beautiful and hopeful songs, in a tumultuous global period.
Materials – Porcelain Clay
Process – Raw Porcelain is rolled to create the tile, each letter is hand imprinted into the clay, which is first fired to bisque. Underglaze is then applied, and the piece is fired to 1290 degrees celsius, making it solid to withstand all elements. 
The art tile is then mounted onto a white frame (10cm x 15cm approx), with any inscription you would like written under the tile. Otherwise this will be left blank. 
*Each piece is custom made, and so the image is a representation of the finished piece.
