Making A Life and A Living


Preston Farabow was featured in the Friday, January 23 edition of the News Sentinel’s Go Knoxville section, in an article by Randall Brown. You can read the complete article Here. Preston has referred to himself as a ‘metaliturgical artist’, a term he coined when he forged the first of many crosses hanging throughout the Cathedral. The crosses, located in the Cathedral office, downstairs in Room 7, and in the Education building, are a beautiful example of how Preston makes his work his ministry. He hopes to use his talents in forging metal to help others forge a life. The article highlights Preston’s philosophy about the transformative nature of creative work and imagination in people’s lives, as well as his plans for The Ferre Beau School of Thought. So named for the French spelling of Farabow, the translation is “beautiful iron”. What a beautiful irony. The non-profit school will serve at-risk populations with a curriculum designed to help them rebuild their lives and themselves. Be sure to check out the News Sentinel’s full article at the URL above. It’s a great read!
