Life Drawing: Phoenix, is one of 5 natural stone mosaics being created for 5 schools in Norfolk, VA by Mark Archambault of Hammerhead Stoneworks in Asheville, NC. The mosaics speak to the idea of students making things; not just the life that they see, but drawing the life they want for themselves. Mark met with students earlier in the year to gather ideas. Several varieties of marble from India, Emperador Dark Marble from Spain and Etowah Pink Marble, a salmon pink metamorphic rock with rose-pink, grey and white rose color waves found in Tate, Georgia are just some of the unique stones Mark chose for Life Drawing: Phoenix. Mark installed a 6th mural, “Birds of Every Feather” on the exterior of Ocean View Elementary School in 2018 also.
