Not long ago I was asked to create a personalized wedding gift. I knew that the person who commissioned my services would tell me about the couple and then set me free to come up with something appropriate. So…I agreed.
The bride and groom are both devoted disciples of Christ and have a passion for helping others. It took me a couple of months, but I finally came up with something (wild though it might be) that would be a symbol of their passion for each other, their Lord and for touching the lives of others.
I made it out of steel and copper and embellished it with some metal leaf. I call it “Light Your World”.
The thing weighs ten pounds, so you can’t just pop it in a gift bag and head to the wedding. So…..I decided that instead of the usual bag or paper covered box, it should travel to the couple in a wooden crate adorned with the brand of my gallery. At that point I had to cut and paste, since I had neither crate nor brand.
I started with the brand.
