Jake Weidmann's "Sojourner's Rose" has evolved over the years from a conceptual sketch to a permanent design executed in ink on calfskin vellum, to a 40-inch by 46-inch mahogany carving, hand-carved by the multi-talented artist. This piece will now go through another phase in the form of a bronze limited edition.
These bronze limited edition pieces are currently in production. We are taking collector inquiries now at their lowest price. For more detailed information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Watch the original "Sojourner's Rose" pen and ink creation process above. After final execution, the design was reproduced on 25 wood slabs that were commissioned by the Q Conference in 2012, held in Denver that year. These wood slabs served as part of the decor for the conference. Jake was invited as a speaker for the 2012 event on which he spoke of the story and signifigance of his redesigned compass rose.
