Some of the students, teachers and I finished working on the prototype for the tile mosaic public art project. Here it in the drying process. We ended up combining several of the students' designs to come up with this one. There is a stylized sun in the middle of a circle, with radiant lines emerging from that. The border design is a stretched image of the "Charlotte crown" which appears all over the city- on street signs, etc- because Charlotte is the Queen City. I like how it first appears as just a border design, but then can be recognized as the crown.
Here are some of the pieces in the kiln. It looks so different when they're mixed and scattered. Don't worry, we labeled the backs of each piece by 4 quadrants- it would be a difficult puzzle to put back together otherwise!
