Today we had our "closing event". The labyrinth is almost finished. I feel like Galloway Township is my "home away from home". I really enjoyed working with both the kids and the staff. The labyrinth will be a place for students to go when they need a little quiet time on the playground. Everyone is so proud of their work! My hope is that all students who participated will explain the work we did, and the process and the meaning of the project to all the students in the school. Hopefully the story of its creation will be passed down from class to incoming class. Thank you so much to the students, and to Mrs. D, Ms. Jes, Ms. Katie, Ms. Kim and especially Cathy Hilferty for all the work you did to help make this project successful!

Walk the path to the heart center. Remember your animal and plant friends. Remember our time together.

Making Progress with a little help from my friends


Slowly progress is being made. My friend and fellow Philadelphia College of Art alum Ellen Pantano spent the day helping me to glue tiles. I hope to begin grouting next week. I am still short of tile and need to keep making those tiles!

More photo's of residency day 21

Michele Russo from Young Audiences visited on the beautiful sunny day we installed the frame for the labyrinth. She took these photo's of Warren Bradway and I, with some students,who are assisting with the construction and tiling. The labyrinth deck is made of nine pieces of 4X4 foot exterior plywood and hardi backer board. Each piece was separately screwed into the frame. Students are tiling over the seams so that the finished piece will appear to be one continous surface.

Friends Mural


I finally finished the Friends Mural. It's attached to the wall in front of the Friends School of Mullica Hill. It's made of ceramic tile letters on a stained glass background. This is my first outside mural. Thanks to Warren Bradway for his excellent engineering services.

The mural is visible from High Street in Mullica Hill.


Residency Day 23


Students work on painting the black border tiles. We try to paint the glaze as even and neatly as possible.

We continued gluing the tile to the labyrinth. The weather is not very cooperative. It has been very rainy and cool. We need a few sunny days to complete the gluing and then the grouting will begin!
