On Thursday, April 30th, W.D. Hartley Elementary School celebrated the gift of an original handcrafted mosaic that was created and donated by talented local artist, Manila Clough. The work is a depiction of the school's butterfly garden and it features many tiny hidden treasures including poems and phrases, postage stamps, beads, music scores, butterflies, a lighthouse and more. What appears to be a backdrop of tiles are actually individually cut stained glass pieces Mrs. Clough harvested from a larger piece and which give the work an iridescent shimmer.
