My steel crosses are made from solid pieces of metal stock. I hammer forge them into the Roman style nails that were used during the time of Christ. I then heat one of the nails up to a very bright glowing orange heat and hammer the cold nail through the hot one to create this powerful looking cross. I then add hammer marks to give the cross a textured old look to it.
I’ve been commissioned to make these for weddings, anniversaries, confirmations, graduations and memorials. They are very powerful sculptures that stand out on a table top or shelf. I’m always proud to make these because I know they are being given to someone in a spirit of friendship, love and caring.
These are not Rail Road spikes. My steel crosses stand between 10 & 12 inches tall.
