Mandalas as a symbol of wholeness are found in cultures around the world, reflecting the symmetry of natural forms, the cycle of life, and the circle of community.  This large-scale ceramic installation of sculptural mandalas represents the life journey of the artist, who recently returned from a residency at the Watershed Center for Ceramic Art.  This exhibition represents many of the new ideas that evolved in her work as a result of this amazing experience.
