philly mural arts

3

My mosaic mural. 16x4 feet. Over 200 hammer-smashed ceramic tiles, two 3x4 foot mirrors hand-cut into 2x4 inch pieces, 5 gallons of hand-mixed cement, two 8x4 foot slabs of wood backing, two 8x4 foot slabs of concrete backing, and custom cut & glazed clay tiles (for the precious little reading cherubs).

Due to space restrictions I had to work on the two halves separately, usually in different rooms. This was the first time I got to see them together.

Installed at Belmont Charter School in West Philadelphia.
