This thesis is a study of separation, asking the question of whether the act of separation can elevate the composition of
material, space, and light to awaken the mind, eye, and soul. The vehicle for this study is an artisans' retreat placed on
the ridge line of Brush Mountain located in Blacksburg, Virginia. This project explores the idea of separation and the
moments it creates at many scales: man to nature, maker to made, public to private, structure to skin, and detail to
whole. This project consists of two lines. One houses the makers and one supports the place for the making, consisting
of studio spaces for sculpting, painting, and creating ceramics. Lastly, this project contains two other structures for the
public to partake in the celebration of the creations: an outdoor amphitheater and a gallery which displays current and
past work of resident artists.
