Harmony Tree_01

The Harmony Tree

Given in memory of

Donald Schlegel

by his friends and family


Medium: Oak, Cast Glass, Steel, Brass

"The geometric shape 'vesica pisces' where two circles intersect to create a fish shape, is found throughout Christian history.  It represents the intersection of the realms of the divine and matter, a reference to Christ.  The twelve abstracted leaves portray the disciples of Jesus.  Each unique leaf has unifying qualities revolving around the sun.  This central circle is symbolic of the light and teachings of Jesus.  My intention was to create a work that represents universal harmony, realized through the love and wisdom we share with one another.


The origination of this work of art began through a series of conversations with the Tryon Presbyterian Church  Donor Recognition Committee in the fall of 2017.  The committee members requested the sculpture represent the diversity and commitment of the church.  I am grateful for the opportunity to create this sculpture in my community.  My inspiration and concept was based on traveling along a path in the forest through a cathedral of trees.  I extend my gratitude to the collaborators of this project, craftsmen Dave Fisher and Paul Santini whose skills, friendship and support helped make this vision become reality."
