Tool Crib (image pending)
Wolcott Technical High School, Torrington
interior sculpture
main entrance lobby
1999
 
Tool Crib is designed as a welcoming piece of public art including seating as part of its design.  In the tableau of hand tools each form is alive with gesture.  The hand tools have become a metaphor for the student.  Each tool has a distinct personality reflecting self and self worth.  The hand tool is used as an extension of the hand and therefore an extension of the mind. 
 
 
 
The Scribe (image pending)
Windham Technical High School, Willimantic
exterior cor-ten steel sculpture
main entrance
1997
 
The Scribe was designed as a walk-through entrance to the school's front courtyard constructed in the shape of a giant drafting compass.  Adjacent to the monumental figure sits a spherical steel form doubling as a bench.  Boyajian says "the sphere is representative of an individual's relationship to the universe and the compass figure represents that individual's ability to find center and circumscribe his or her own path."
