Black Faced Sheep owner and artist, Don Johns, makes each one of these crosses by hand. A woodworker at heart, he sees the cross within the wood and it never fails to amaze.
The wood cross often has natural cracks that run throughout that he fills with turquoise. A pastor once said that the turquoise fills the cracks in the wood, much like Jesus fills the cracks in our lives. What a poetically true statement. Don has an honest yearning to honor God through his gift of woodworking and with that comes these one-of-a-kind masterpiece crosses for sale.
A common comment we get from people, who have ordered them online, is that the pictures don't do these crosses justice. This is such a true statement - when you see the cross in person you will simply be taken aback.
Made with love, prayed over before it leaves his hands and sure to bless you or the recipient. Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
**This particular standing cross is made of Osage Orange wood with turquoise inlay 5" x 3" by 1" thick - finished with tongue oil to preserve the natural beauty of the wood. This cross is considered a small standing cross with a design called "A Cross Within". (second picture is of the back of the cross)
