project overview

Rock City - Dalstrom Park

The tiles are hand-made glass tiles in curving vines and colorful flowers, surrounded by glass tiles.

This project, by local artist Suzy Hendrix, was produced around the idea of a zen garden and provides a bold dash of color to this urban park. The project consists of two installations, one on the Shelby Drive -side of the park, and one on the Weaver Road-side of the park. Each installation consists of natural boulder forms covered in mosaic tiles. The tiles are hand-made glass tiles in curving vines and colorful flowers, surrounded by glass tiles.  The installations also serve as trail-head markers, and are set in raked concrete that resembles a meditation garden.
