This is a chalice made for the cathedral in Fresno, CA and used by bishop Steinbock. It is all hand wrought with the bowl and base made from 6'' disc of 18g sterling and the stem is a seamed cone in 18g sterling. The seam is hidden behind the cross made in 14g sterling. The shape of the cross is meant to express the trinity and the sharing between god-heads.
