Later in April, we delivered a large Corpus to St. Raphael Catholic Church in Oshkosh, WI. Along with the Corpus we created a "ray background" for the Cross which, along with the lighting, helps create a focal point. It's always a pleasure to do a project for a church in our home state and this one was no exception. It was the second time we had worked with the church; our first commission was a wood carving of the Holy Family (below)
Coming up shortly we will be installing mosaic at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines, IL & Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Hillside, IL. Both pieces are going to be part of a shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe. The original idea was to have a 30 foot granite structure with the depiction of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego in mosaic, and then our clients decided to add a second "miniature" version which will be 12 feet overall. You can see a rendering below along with some of the mosaic work in progress. Photos of the installed pieces to come ASAP!
