Gilded Beech-wood Cross

Gilded Beech-wood Cross suspended over the central Altar in Churchill College Chapel, Cambridge and commissioned by The Goldsmiths’ Company. The brief asked for a three-dimensional Cross on account of its being placed at the centre of a square building. I resolved this by contriving a solid Cross in one plane, and a linear outline Cross of textured anodised aluminium in the second plane, at a right-angle to the Gilded Cross.

The whole construction is suspended on four piano-wires. Commissioned by The Goldsmiths’ Company together with four floor-standing wooden Candlesticks, also for The Chapel.
