Jars


The third symbol for my commissioned piece will be a collection of jars. This is taken from the passage in the bible in 2 Corinthians 4:7, which says:
"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us".

This makes me think about all the people who volunteer their time in the cafe and bookshop. Some customers are troubled with addiction, are grieving or have the burden of worry. The Hope Centre is a place where they can be welcomed with a smile, spend as much time as they need and there is always someone who can sit with them and listen. God's treasure, his grace, spills out from these people, as through the cracks in fragile clay jars.

These are some pages from my sketchbook, looking at composition, shapes and colours.
