faile temple project

from Erica at {thoughtfulday.blogspot.com}
"The Temple project has been two years in the making. It is made up of huge ceramic relief sculptures, cast iron gates, marble sculptures, mosaics, not to mention the 1000's of tiles placed on the interior and exterior walls of this piece. Every single element in this sculpture was custom made and thoughtfully considered. Everything. So much went into this project. The structure itself is made to look like a ruin that has been blasted open to show the hidden beauty that rests inside. And once you're inside, you're blown away by the layers upon layers of detail within the mosaics, the spinning prayer wheels, the marble scuba horse fountain, and well, everything. Every detail was above and beyond breathtaking."

I went to college with Erica and her husband, Patrick (who was co-partner on the faile temple) at MCAD, in Minneapolis. I have to say that this temple is amazing. I would love to hear what our teachers thought of this work. The details, color, sense of scale and use of materials is just stunning. Jan Jancourt would have to give it a solid nod because it is a great work of art...
