The enameled copper sign I created for the new Benet Hill Monastery facility was installed just before the monastery was dedicated on October 11.
The sign is mounted on a seven-foot-tall stone pylon. The approach to the monastery is marked by the 32" diameter sign, along with a 22" diameter Benedictine Medal that I reproduced in enameled copper.
The reverse side of the sign, visible as one leaves the monastery, bears the word "peace." In very subtle transparent enamels, the word "listen" is superimposed on the word "peace." The photo shows how the "peace" side appears in situ, against the surrounding trees. ("Listen" is the first word of the Benedictine Rule.) I'm grateful to Sister Charlotte of the Benet Hill community for her guidance, and to architect Bill Beard, who designed the facility, for connecting me with the community.
