clay treasures

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed . . .
Luke took pottery as a term-length elective, and seems to have found one of his callings in this very African art form. Pictured above are the projects he packed home to show us. He loves the hand-in-clay creativity of working with the wheel, and the challenge of making something of symmetry and beauty that will stand the firing. His teacher is a master, and drew spiritual lessons too, that God knows what we must endure and models our clay sides just thick enough to withstand the particular trials of our lives.

Wow, Luke did an awesome job. I love the mug with the elephant. All of the pieces are beautiful.
