Vistarus-3

Driven by talent

Jan Brown of Vistarus Mission Station captures the beauty of automobiles in wood.

These exceptional wooden cars were carved by Jan Brown, who heads the workshop at Vistarus Mission Station. Vistarus was established in 1998 by Kobus and Lynette Jacobs and now provides shelter to 305 adults, including homeless and addicted individuals, and 90 children. 

Jan has spent seven months at Vistarus, having previously visited the mission station six times over the past 10 years. A building contractor by trade, Jan loves pouring his energies and creative skills into woodwork. 

Jan’s beautiful wooden cars sell from R2 500. For more information, check out Vistarus Mission Station’s Facebook page.
