Stephanie Holland and her friend Beverly Ellis were taking ceramics at New Mexico Junior College twice a week as a hobby, but neither had ever made a tile. They decided to create a mural for the town they loved. They designed, made mistakes, and started over when necessary. Using Laguna clay, Coyote Clay high fire underglazes, a clear glaze recipe from Santa Fe Clay, and a book on tile making by Angelica Pozo, the project took about four years. In July of 2009, a Hobbs citizen donated the funds through Main Street Hobbs to have Riley Tile of Roswell install the project.
