In 2003, I was selected to develop a ceramic mural for the Lagomarcino Courtyard on the Iowa State campus.  A concept drawing by Gail Kristensen had been created and when she was unable to materialize the project, a search was conducted.  The committee gave me the option to redesign the mural but I elected to work from Kristensen’s plan, making several modifications in the composition and redesigning the installation to create a continuous ceramic work.  I worked with students on this project, which was installed after a year and a half of fabrication and firing.
