As part of a two-year restoration of 97-year-old St. Mary’s Hall, pieces of ornamental stonework—including 10 angels—are being removed and recreated. Above, sculptor Ndricim Bejko of Skylight Studios uses an oil-based clay to build up the eroded surfaces of an original statue, guided by old photographs and plans. A rubber mold of the reconstructed clay piece will be used as the form for a new cast-stone reproduction. St. Mary’s is slated to reopen in January 2015. It will house several academic departments and, on the upper floors, members of the Jesuit community.
