Product Description

Inspired by a native american artifact, the labyrinth spheres nestle easily in your palm and can be traced with a fingernail, toothpick or fingertip.
This is a modified Reims labyrinth done in 3 dimensions. The words Joy, Peace, Hope, Faith occupy the 4 quadrant rests and Love occupies the center.

About the Reims Cathedral Labyrinth:
Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral was built during the 13th and 14th centuries. The kings of France were once crowned here and the cathedral contains many fine examples of tapestries and art. The labyrinth was made of black and white marble and was removed in 1788 at the instruction of the Cannon of Reims Cathedral who was disturbed by the people walking the labyrinth.

About the cast labyrinths:

Each of my labyrinth designs are created from original art pieces. I work with wood, clay, wax, plaster and other materials depending on the complexity and intended use of the designs. Once the originals are ready, I meticulously create molds that capture the texture and feel of the originals. The molds are left to set for several days while they cure and then carefully the originals are removed. Test casts are performed looking for errors. Usually a design requires 2-3 mold trials before it comes out looking the way I was hoping it would. Once the mold is completed, casting can begin. Each design tends to have its own individual quirks about how it wants to be poured and demolded. The finished plaster castings air dry and then are painted. I work in plaster because it helps keep the costs down – I don’t consider these original art, I think of them as “accessible” art. Something that doesn’t break anyone’s budget to enjoy and still allows me to keep being creative. I hope you enjoy them!
