One of the joys in life is when unexpected options present themselves. Some would call this "good luck," but I am not sure that such a thing as good luck actually exists. If so, I would say that good luck is really the intersection of preparation and opportunity. Such has been the case for me during the past several years in the area of church furniture. I find this to be highly rewarding, in that the designs for such work are based upon very personal, yet communal and theological roots.
A forthcoming project involves an Advent Wreath for a Wisconsin church. The design is rather simple, yet very fluid, with a great amount of visual movement. The project is set to commence during the summer, and to be completed in time for the Advent Season.
I am happy to say that I finished and delivered the Advent Candelabrum in time for the Advent Season. The pastors were very happy, as was the congregation! :)
Below are some process photos.
