BISHOP HIGH'S PECTORAL CROSS
This gallery will show the pectoral cross made for The Rt. Rev. Rayford High's 2003 consecration as Bishop Suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.

I have added a series of photos showing the development of the wax model for his cross. This wax modeling process takes days and weeks of tedious hand work to bring the design to fruition.

Patience is a virtue in this line of work.

A description of each step accompanies each photo in this gallery.
