Welcome to my site of hand sculpted wooden crosses and other shapes, made to your design choice or bespoke to your own ideas
My work-shop is situated virtually on the Kedleston Road/Duffield Road merging. and literally just outside (across the road) from the official CATHEDRAL QUARTER.
Latest additions (with the Christmas market in mind) are my T Light holders which in the first instance are for single lights, these will be followed shortly by taller holders, and ones for multiple lights.
My smallest crosses are about 5 cm high, the largest over 2 metres, and anything in between.
I offer individually commissioned work, and supply Retreat Houses, Christian Book shops, and Church shops across the UK and Junior Schools, as well as many private customers.
I first started doing these 20+ years ago – having been a woodworker all my life, but never all that interested in joinery or cabinet making, I wanted to make crosses but didn’t want to have to tangle with joint – though necessary, I find then tedious.
Having always been fascinated by the incarnation ‘God made man’- experiencing Jesus in our everyday life and our understanding of the cross, I wanted to portray the cross in a way in which it wasn’t normally seen, and in which it would speak to people in a way in which the ‘standard’ cross didn’t.
After a lot of thinking and experimenting, I adapted to using my bandsaw, and with some trial and error came up with my present ‘style’.
Each year, my wife and I take our work on exhibitions throughout the UK, visiting Theological Colleges, the main annual Church supplies exhibitions, Baptist, Methodist, and United Reformed Church conferences, to name but three.
We exhibit at 5 Head Teachers Conferences yearly. Our work, both textiles and wood, is becoming increasingly popular with both Catholic, and C of E Primary Schools for both indoor and outdoor work.
*Please note that due to the small size of my business I can supply to EU countries only
