A Processional Cross

This processional cross was inspired by the medieval wall painting in the People’s Chapel of the Abbey and handmade from stainless steel.  The surface marks of its cutting, welding and forging act as expressive signatures of human pain and endurance, traditional elements of the Passion expressed in the iconography of Northern European Christian art.
