Crosses heading to Taos, New Mexico

 The owner of The Walden Fine Art Gallery requested more red crosses to sell in her gallery.  All three crosses were made with red and amber glass. Ceramic plates were broken and added along with 3 black speckled pebbles purchased from a rock store, glass gems of gold, sienna, and red were also soldered into the design. Black patina applied. Materials came from Oklahoma, Colorado, Missouri, Tennessee, and California.  
 Chunky Red  - 15 inches tall and 12 inches across.
 Red Plate Cross - 15 1/2 inches tall and 10 inches wide.
 Golden Brown and Red Cross - 18 inches tall and 16 inches wide.  This one has a large geode in the center.
 Close up shot of more detail. These crosses have an eclectic collection of broken ceramic plates, gold, red, and sienna glass gems with blacked speckled pebbles and marble glass from Missouri.
Crosses were stained with a black patina which gives the dark lines throughout each design.
