pointed arches & ribbed vaults


Duke

The visit to Duke Chapel left me feeling breathless – there’s no other way to describe it. I don’t have the words. I didn’t expect the pipe organ and it filled the chapel.

Then again, those arches and vaults – shades of art history – they are stunning examples.

I was there to see the library actually, and it was a practice run – and it was a good thing to have done. I’m unfamiliar with both Durham and Duke campus and it was well worth having made the visit.

In a few weeks indigo dye vats will be set up in the library and that exotic blue will be introduced to roughly 30 – 40 elementary school teachers. We hope they’ll be so taken with it, they’ll want to take the experience back to their classrooms.
