Scroll of Memories

This is the first project that I assisted Nina Solomon with from 2005-2006. Scroll of Memories celebrates the 75th anniversary of Beth El Congregation at 1118 W.  Glendale Ave., Phoenix, AZ. The bench and scroll are built of Fiberglass Reinforced Concrete (FGRC) over carved Styrofoam forms. All of the tiled surfaces are made of handmade, glazed, ceramic tile. The congregants of Beth El participated in many aspects of the project from design and concept, to shaping Styrofoam forms, cementing the forms, making and glazing tiles. They developed a text and photo history which Nina translated into photo tiles through a process using an HP laser printer and Lasertran decal paper.
