    Just Steampunk! Volume 1 2011


2013_SacredHeartIn the style of Laurie Mika, this “shrine” was made for my neighbor who just a week or so ago lost her husband Chet to cancer.  Chet was a very sweet, kind man who always had a smile for everyone and was a wonderful husband and Father to his two sons Joseph and Charles.  The heart in the center was a glass ornament that I colored with alcohol ink then made a crown of thorns from polymer clay. Most of the tiles are polymer clay but I used a row of glass tiles near the center. The cross if from Italy and there is also a St. Joseph metal embedded in the clay. Chet’s family is very religious and I hope this tribute to Chet gives the family some comfort.  Chet will be missed.

  1. Pat this is an amazing tribute to your friend and his for his family. I can’t think of a more fitting outpouring of love. Well done!
