Sculpted cross

This is a sculpture I made for an Episcopal church in Delaware. The intention of the rector was for an arresting form to set a tone for those entering the parish hall.  The cross stands seven feet high and is made of mixed materials.  The rocks are held together with epoxy paste. The natural part of the tree was made from resin over a wood form with the bark cast from rubber molds taken from an actual tree and painted. The finished wood is tangentially sawn red oak boards, glued into hollow beams and fitted together into the cross. The church motto was carved in Gothic letters.
