Anyone You Want to see on a Cremation Urn?
There was no outlet for my political outrage, which dates back to the so-called election of George W. Bush, until I had a web site done (www.sybilsage.com) and added to my inventory of beautiful mosaic vases, picture frames, lamps, planters and candlestick holders a line I call The Breaking News series, which includes cremation urns designed with broken pieces of red, white and blue American flag plates and small photos of those who've pissed me off. There's the political sexual scandal urn that inclues pictures of John Edwards, John Ensign and Mark Sanford, the financial fraud urn with corporate logos and ponzi schemers, job losses depicted with pink slips and the national debt clock and one dedicated to right wingers -- Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, Ann Coulter, etc.
My tabletop functional art has been popular as gifts, and I take custom orders so can personalize these (perhaps initials of newlyweds, name of new baby, "love" spelled out in baby beads). But for rancor and revenge, there's nothing more satisfying than putting a face on an urn. The urns, incidentally, can also be personalized so you can keep a loved one, complete with photos, in your home...or someone less loved, perhaps not yet dead to satisfy your own rage.
