CERAMIC APSE SILT: Members of the construction crew are finishing the exterior of the restroom in the ceramic apse to match that of surrounding buildings. (Left) Angus Gluck applies a special type of plaster to prepare the surface of the walls. [Photo & Text: KH]

It will take some time for the walls to dry. When finished, part of the silt will be brushed away and the walls will blend in with the rest of the apse structure. [Photo & Text: KH]
