The River of Peace Mural is a 35 foot ceramic tile mural on the East outside wall of the Lower Pavilion at Ghost Ranch, facing the Peace Garden. The mural shape echoes the Fibonacci curves contained in the layout of the Peace Garden. Clay slips in natural hues on the tiles relate to the colors of the rocks, sky and earth at Ghost Ranch. Permanently fired into the surface, a visual river of spiritual symbols from around the world is integrated into a mosaic of hand-written poems, prayers, intentions, quotes and original writings.
Because of widespread interest in the mural and the participation of the community, Barbara Campbell and Judy Nelson-Moore decided to create 6” tiles using the methods and imagery from the River of Peace Mural. This is a way for people to have a “piece of the Peace Mural” to take home. These tiles are all unique and made by hand. They provide a lovely remembrance of the mural and Ghost Ranch.
All profits benefit the ceramic studio in Pot Hollow at Ghost Ranch. This studio has been providing a place for clay exploration and learning for over 45 years. Your purchase of this tile supports the Ghost Ranch workshops as well as clay workshops and activities of the New Mexico Potters and Clay Artists in Pot Hollow.
Tiles are $18 and are available in the gift shop at the Ghost Ranch Welcome Center.
