The ABAA challenge this week is Milagros Hearts. I made this milagros heart using my favorite metal - an old pie tin. Milagros refers to a tinwork technique in Mexico. Frequently the hearts will have flames which signifies the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Sometimes they have wings - I'm not too sure what that means - but it always reminds me of the movie Castaway. I love doing these metal pieces in the round - which is so easy when you start with a pie tin. You just do repeating patterns around and around. There's something very meditative about it. Anyway, I was meditating on: Cast your cares upon Him, for He cares for you ...... so my heart ended up with flames because I was thinking about the love of Jesus.
And this is one of my Great Grandmother's wineglasses. The love is flowing :)
