Chicago- Tile Installation

Fall 2013

While awaiting   my new studio space, I have taken on a tile sculpture- Chicago. I am working out of Higher Fire in San Jose to build a wall installation  from 70 hand cut and painted tiles, each 8 in on a side. Using an earlier work, Chicago- watercolor and pen- from 2012, I am reproducing my abstract vision of the sculpture Cloud Gate by Anish Kapoor (Chicago, Ill. Millennium Park)

The first series of tiles are all test pieces- to determine the most optimal tile size, clay shrinkage and color of the specific underglazes employed.

I will begin the actual tiles for the installation in November 2013.
