Capital Caring Mural Underway

Karen sculpting directly onto the clay.

A sneak peek into our studio today! We are working on a custom ceramic tile donor recognition mural for Capital Caring. The 14′ x 7′ ceramic mural will be installed in the main entry area of the Adler Center. The work will be a bird’s eye view landscape featuring an undulating river. In the background will be the Shenandoah Mountains and the Washington DC skyline. Some of the symbolism include: horse farms (a reference to power and freedom), a labyrinth (reference to spiritual pathway), a sailboat and kayaks (symbolic of a safe crossing), and rapids in the river (symbolic of the challenges in life).

Check out the progress photos below.
