Sing in me, muse, and through me tell a story.
– The Odyssey
Mari O’Dell and Barb Harper enshrine their skills
Let yourself become living poetry.


Maryland’s Mari O’Dell, teacher, and Colorado’s Barb Harper, airplane mechanic, combined talents for this portable personal shrine. As you might expect, Barb engineered the hinges, the rod for the prayer wheel and other structural parts. Mari concentrated on the poetry and the imagery.

Neither would have accomplished such a complex and powerful polymer piece on her own and their success has prompted them to continue their collaboration. Two heads are often better than one.

                  I was within earshot distance as these two very talented ladies worked on this remarkable piece. They were the very essence of cooperation and collaboration. I know it was a truly wonderful and memorable experience for them. Taz, I am sure you will treasure this piece. I know we were all in awe of it.
