“YES, I WILL DRINK FROM THIS CUP”
———— ROUSEings™ ————
by Graham Rouse
- A CUP OF WOOD – One customer may want to give emphasis to the humble life of Jesus and his work as a carpenter. He may visualize a wooden cup as an appropriate symbol for the Eucharist
- A CUP OF STEEL – Another customer may think it is more important to remind participants that the 2,000 year old story is still relevant today by suggesting a modern stainless steel or anodized aluminum vessel to carry the message.
- A CUP OF CRYSTAL AND JEWELS – Yet another may want to focus attention on the glory to come from accepting God’s gift and dedicating one’s own life to serving Him. The sparkling light reflected in a chalice of crystal and jewels may better serve his vision.
CONSIDERING YOUR OPTIONS – Once you have a deeper understanding of your customer then you will have more options to consider.
- A CUP OF WOOD – What about using brown balloons that you have intentionally oxidized to suggest ancient wood. Maybe you add black lines made with puffed, but not inflated long balloons to suggest cracks. Maybe you add lines of red to suggest the wine/ blood.
- A CUP OF STEEL – You might use metallic or chrome finished balloons. Some metallic paints can work. Others have solvents that can pop balloons.
- A CUP OF CRYSTAL AND JEWELS – Our photo above provides a starting example for you. Clear balloons and jewel-tone balloons are translucent and sparkle well in the light. Single layers of balloons are especially useful for this effect. Rouse Matrix™ is used in this example for single layer framing. RMS™ works especially well and can be cut easily with scissors into custom shapes.
WHEN ALL IS DONE
I hope that
- when all is done
- the stage is set
- the ceremony has begun and
- the participants rest their eyes upon your display;
they will think to themselves
- “Yes, this is in harmony with my faith.”
- “Yes, this affirms the life I want to live.”
