(80”x 40”x 10”) for a Summit Country Day School Artist Residency, high relief ceramic wall panels featuring donor recognition plates, created with junior high students over a four-month residency. The students created multiples of leaf and petal tiles that completed the halo, the framing tiles, dozens of complex flower forms in the heart of the angel, and the tunic tiles. The remaining work was completed in the studio of the artist.
