Jessi Li and George Rodriguez
The Way of the Cross
Ceramic, 2012
Jessi Li and George Rodriguez, Seattle ceramic artists, collaborated on this new work based on the devotion of the Way of the Cross.  All 14 traditional stations are represented, beginning on the bottom left with Pilate’s palace and the condemnation of Jesus, and moving across and up the massive shape, which suggests the mountain of Calvary.  Look for the different moments along Jesus’s final journey:  Jesus meeting his Mother, falling three times beneath the cross, encountering Veronica, Simon, and the women of Jerusalem, and dying on the cross.
This work was created as part of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) gathering which will take place in Seattle, March 25-31 of this year.  St. James is one of many Seattle landmarks which will host special installations highlighting the beauty of ceramic art.  Visit www.nceca.net for more information.
