St. Andrews United Methodist Church developed the space between their church and activities building, which included a small labyrinth. The pattern was a Santa Rosa seven-circuit design around 28 feet in diameter. We scored the pattern into the concrete and hand-colored it, as was done on many of the examples here on our website. This is our proprietary technique, which makes a concrete labyrinth viable, durable, and affordable. It is vastly superior to stain or paint, as it is all concrete.
Since it was a small job, I drove out with the truck and trailer and called upon labyrinth aficionado Pamela Fillmore to help, along with her teenage son Jesse. We dodged the rain and managed to finish on time. We don't yet have photos of the labyrinth in its final landscaped setting. All of these pictures were taken by Pamela. Pamela's website is www.pathsofillumination.com, plus she has a blog on this particular job, at: http://www.pathsofillumination.com/Blog.html
Cleaning up before sealing.
The lines have a unique circle at the end, derived from a Medieval manuscript. The over cut is deliberate, as the whole circle and line are filled with polymer concrete.
Here I just finished scoring the circle for the altar space. My tool worked perfectly.
Hand coloring with polymer concrete.
We work hard, then we clean up and eat well. A deserved reward.
