Bench beautifies school

Finished the PV High memorial bench for Anna yesterday.  It looks so good!  I worked with several students and family members, making tiles and two mosaic doves.  Then we had Limey Tee's (local screen-printer) make Anna's art into glass sublimation tiles.  Sublimation tiles put the image underneath the glass and it's bonded with heat so it lasts forever and can't be scratched off. Now there are three different pieces of her art, full color, on the bench surrounded by mosaic.  We made guitar tiles, word tiles, polka dots and stars.  I think it was a rather healing process in which to grieve and make something beautiful from something so sad and tragic.  The picture above is of Reta, the art teacher and me after we finished grouting.
