These designs were inspired by bronze relief castings of masons' tools, inlaid in the marble entry floor of the Masonic temple, Trenton, New Jersey. For millennia, these hand tools have enabled the construction of buildings referencing sacred proportions, terrestrial landmarks and celestial events. In these panels, I have joined these tools with an equally ancient, celestial geometry incorporated in the Tara Brooch. This Celtic building orienting tool, circa 2000 BCE, was used to orient civic and religious buildings and ceremony to significant celestial events.
Panel fabrication is pending a commission.
