Crosier for the Bishop of Sheffield
Sterling Silver, 2014.
Nick Palmer and Stefan Tooke were honoured to be commissioned to design and make a new crosier for the Bishop of Sheffield Steven Croft.
This piece jointly celebrates the centenary of Harry Brearley's discovery of stainless steel in 1913 and the centenary of the Sheffield Cathedral which was elevated from parish church status when the new diocese was created in 1914.
Sponsored by Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield Assay office and the laser cutting company, the crosier was completed in June 2014.
