Beauty For Ashes
"Most of the things I make are meaningful to me, and this piece is no exception. The tree is made entirely out of ashes and glue, and it is meant to represent a time of sadness or mourning, out of which God will bring growth, joy, and peace. The tree is certainly not dead, and when springtime arrives, it will burst into bud, stronger and more beautiful than ever before. I’d imagine that most people can relate to the “beauty for ashes” theme in some way. But for me personally, there have been many piles of metaphorical ashes in my life, but there hasn’t been a single one that Jesus has failed to turn into something beautiful."
