Walk Thursday October 11, 2001 Corolla NC on the beach
The labyrinth at Forestheart Studio was designed by studio owner Mary Klotz, who was intrigued
with the design challenge. This labyrinth is nontraditional: it
was charted on a hexagonal (triaxial)
grid. It is not round, nor is it divided into quadrants, it has
no center; the line is continual and returns to its starting point
without retracing your steps. There are three vaguely heart shaped
areas in which to pause. If the walk is begun in one direction,
these inner heart areas of shorter line segments (with frequent
turns) are encountered early in the journey, and then the path
leads outward. If the walk is begun in the other direction, one
is led from the periphery into the central areas.
The labyrinth, its embedded images of upturned
hands, and each walk of the labyrinth are inkblots: they serve
as metaphors for each individual according to where they are in
their life's journey.
The experience of walking the labyrinth in
solitude is distinctly different from that of sharing the walk
You are welcome to visit and walk any
time the studio is open.
NOTE: walk ON the lines, rather
than between them (less painting!).
The image is available on t-shirts
and will has been worked as a beaded piece exhibited in the labyrinth
exhibit at Sumner School Museum, Washington DC, fall of 2000.
The image is being considered for a peyote pouch beadwork kit
or pattern. It is also available printed
on linen foundation to make a hooked rug.
Mary once again designed the corn maze for the Keystone Chapter
of the Red Cross in Johnstown PA. see 1999's...
This is the Red Cross
chapter that was called to the site of the hijacked plane that
went down in Somerset County Pennsyvania, September 11, 2001.
