Weidmann's instant classic is an intricate pen and ink drawing where tools of various crafts are represented within a classic, organic and semi-symmetrical design intended to stir on the new generation of master creators and crafters. Craftsmanship beautifully takes center stage, emboldened by the charge, Preserve the Past, Forge the Future.

Sailors of long ago looked to the heavens to find their way on this earth. Though the seas would churn and the winds would blow, the heavens remained their constant guide. Burning stars above would chart their course across tumultuous seas, which threatened to claim their lives. Beyond the stars sailors spoke of a greater force, which they believed kept them safe and guided them home- this was the divine.
A ‘sojourner’ is a traveler who does not stay long in any one place. Whether we are literally traveling across an open sea or simply making our way through life, we are all sojourners. So, within the center of the compass rose is a ship sailing across high seas- a reminder that life brings waves to crash against our hull and test the strength of our vessel.

"When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul."
Weidmann gently weaves a sea of script back into the context from which it first transpired. In the 1800's, Horatio Spafford's, "It Is Well With My Soul," was penned while crossing the ocean scene where the lives of his four daughters were lost in a tragic shipwreck. These words, heavy with feeling and brilliant with praise and peace, are well-worn into the souls of many as one of the world's most beloved hymns. In the midst of terrible loss and heartache, we can declare, "it is well, it is well with my soul!"
