In Barry Rose's words: "At the Library" was created with students at Cole Junior High School. Each student sculpted a library book. I filled in with enough to make the rest we needed. I made molds of each and glazed them uniquely, and that was the original project. When the new library was built, they wanted to move the book wall, but it couldn't be moved. The stone substrate was weaker than the epoxy holding the tiles on. They asked me to re-create it and I had the original molds.
