Students from Mascoma Valley Regional High School in Canaan, N.H., created ornaments for the New Hampshire tree that will be part of the “Pathway of Peace” National Christmas Tree display in Washington, D.C., throughout December 2013.
Working with artist and educator Christopher Morse on the project in September and October, they used a variety of media – including ceramics, metal, wood, fiber, natural materials, digital imagery and acrylic painting – to create ornaments that they feel best reflect New Hampshire. The ornaments depict beaver dams, log cabins and historical buildings, outdoor activities, wildlife, lilacs and more. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind creation.
A full press release about this project is available in the NH Department of Cultural Resources' Media Room.
