The Berwick Cross

''I was commissioned by Berwick Church to design a crucifix to replace one which had been stolen.
The idea developed into a portrayal of Jesus’s resurrection rather than his suffering, but which would echo the shape of the cross.
Having grown up in a devout Christian family and society, this became a fascinating opportunity to explore that inheritance, to reassess beliefs and attitudes, to search for something genuine and truthful for myself and to try to make it believable and relevant to others.
Originally planned as a wood carving, the present version in bronze has taken a year of working in clay and then wax, a process of discovering the shapes and tensions of expression and of finding a way to describe aliveness, recognising that the cross must serve as a focal point above the altar.''
