Cambridge Sculptor Installs Bronze Doors

CAMBRIDGE (SNR) — Cambridge artist Sondra L. Jonson, of St. John's Parish, installed the seven-foot by six-foot bronze door sculpture she created at the chapel of the Sisters of St. Joseph motherhouse in Wichita, Kan., April 5. The sculpture, which represents a rising sun, was created from sheets of 16-gauge bronze, cut and colored by the artist, with the assistance of Kruger's Welding of Cambridge. The sculpture was designed to reiterate the image of Resurrection, which is the theme of the chapel. The “Doors of Eternal Life” are opened only at funerals, to walk a sister's casket to the convent cemetery. Ms. Jonson is now creating a six-and-a-half-foot-tall broze sculpture of the Risen Christ to be installed on the wall above the door sculpture. The sculpture of Jesus rising in the Resurrection will have bronze rays behind it, similar to the rays of the sun on the doors. Jonson is also creating a processional cross, made of wood and broze, with a resin-cast corpus, to be installed in the chapel.
