American Sign Language in Garden (ASL in Garden)

Abstract

Collie and Kat, upon purchasing their ranch-style home, decided to completely remodel the kitchen. One special change they made was to commission a tile work by Ellen Mansfield above their stove. Here you see an intermingling of nature and hands affirming ASL. The kitchen is often known as the heart of the home. At the heart of Colleen and Kat’s relationship is the love for their language and culture.
