“Clansman’s Cross”

This piece is a contemporary Sculpture by Stuart Fellowes and depictsan old weathered wooden hand held Celtic cross of a type that was often carried as a personal altar piece whenever a person was journeying away from home. Wherever a rest stop was taken, this cross would have been set up as a focus for prayer. Often it would be displayed above the fireplace or by the front door when at home as an expression of faith and pride in their roots.


Home made crosses such as this became popular between the 11th – 17th centuries until pendant and brooch style metal crosses became more common.


Indoors Wall Hanging. This piece comes ready with a hanging hole on the rear to enable it to be hung flush to a suitable wall from a pin-nail.



HOW THIS MINIATURE WAS CREATED


After many hours researching a subject, I travel the country to measure, sketch and photograph it. This information is brought to my workshop where I set about producing a detailed scale drawing. Once this is completed I use the drawing alongside the photographs to enable me to carve and sculpt the subject in miniature. This whole process  takes many hours, often running into the hundreds. At the end the miniature sculpture becomes the master model with which I make the molds. Each resin casting I make from the molds is an exact reproduction of my original sculpture. I then spend a great deal of time with each and every casting to prepare and paint it using a variety of spray and brush techniques to create a realistic representation of the original, ancient subject. Every stage of this piece you see here is crafted entirely by hand.
