Handmade Tile Murals
South Anchorage High School, 2004
Municipal 1% for Art Program
At South Anchorage High School, I coordinated closely with contractors to install sixteen of my colorful, textured, handmade ceramic tile murals into four restrooms. The work contains detailed compositions with spiral movement and geometric patterns. Some have words by famous thinkers and poets. Sizes vary from 32” squares, to 16” squares. Also, we placed numerous smaller pieces throughout the restrooms’ 8”x 8” gray and white field tile. I chose vibrant commercial tile for top trim and floor accents. In addition, we set five pieces into one of the school’s stairwells.
