This plaque was designed for a retiree of the CT dept. of Correction. I was given numerous patches, badges, pins, and handcuffs and was asked to incorporate all of it into a plaque. The plaque is very large, with the outer diameter reaching almost 3 feet. It's constructed entirely of walnut and is designed as an interpretation of the Department patch. The outer circle features solid brass lettering with the badges, pins, and handcuffs encased within a bed of clear epoxy. The inner portion is shaped to be reminiscent of the CT state seal. Within the inner portion, all of the patches are recessed into the backing to create a smooth surface for the facing glass.
