"…I see the domes as a spiritual space. They create an atmosphere of quiet ontemplation. Sounds resonate in a wonderful way inside the domes & particular tones will vibrate within your body when you talk or hum. It is a warm feeling of being enveloped by the sounds."

Built in the summer of 2012, over 50 volunteers helped construct the sculpture including our pottery students, community, board & staff members under the instruction of Laurie.

The ceramic dome was built, dried & fired over a 6 week period.

Over 22 tons of clay was used on the project & it took about 2 weeks to build the 8ft by 7ft structure.

The kiln was custom built around the finished structure with scaffolding,
