Steel Wonders is a metal art business dedicated to helping others to “stand and consider the wonder of God” (Job 37:14). It is our attempt to capture some portrayal of God’s genius; a replica intended to remind the viewer of His wonderful works. Often our pieces include scriptural references or portions of text to help direct such wonder. The art medium is also intentional–1/8 inch steel plate crafted for reflection of both natural light and deeper thoughts.
While the steel plate has been forged into a usable material, it has yet to be transformed into anything useful. But in the hands of a skilled craftsman, the near raw material is cut and shaped into a specific image. From here much more work of grinding/welding and brazing takes the image to new levels. The colors from within are brought about as the metal reaches different temperatures under intense heat. These natural hues allow for the light to reflect, giving the piece a life of its own. A final polish and a protective clear sealer deliver a beautiful finished product.
We have been forged in the image of God, however apart from the continued work of God, we remain “raw material”. Life’s journey is where we enter God’s workshop and submit ourselves to His workmanship. Our life circumstances are tools by which He uniquely shapes us for His purpose and glory. The Spirit of God bears witness with our spirit, and from the inner man comes eternal colors of godly character. All this make us His masterpiece, able to reflect “the light of God”.
