Reformation Vessels

About this project

The vessels are an attempt to express an idea through woodcraft about the reformation, taking place 500 years ago across europe whereby ‘idols of mere wood’ were destroyed and replaced by the ‘word’. The metaphorical interpretation of the object, allowing imagination ‘between’ the idol and the idolater was replaced by a strict adherence to the word. A search for certainty through language, rather than holding things in balance in the imagination.
