Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite you to explore the beauty of Phoenix area artist Sue Messmer’s Resurrection Crosses this Easter Season. Her crosses large and small include a wire design. All the crosses feature dichroic glass— a shiny glass with a metallized finish. Each is a unique, one of a kind gift.

About Sue Messmer

In addition to being a fused-glass artist, she is a reporter and writer. She works with metals. She sews. She has been a weaver. “I worked with my Dad in his wood shop as a kid,” Sue says. “I learned a lot about creativity working with him and his wood carving. My Dad was a very creative person.” Her biggest strength is her eye for color. “Fused-glass gives me a chance to work with a variety of color combinations,” she says. “Sometimes you find colors that many people wouldn’t think compliment each other but they end up being striking and beautiful.”


Items are sold at St. Mary Basilica, Phoenix, Arizona for those desiring to browse a selection of pieces in person (after it is safe to shop). It may be a beautiful reminder of hope in Jesus’ resurrection at this current time.  Click here.
